Making Wooden Storm Doors is a fun and intense, three-day, hands-on learning experience. Students will learn how to make wooden combination storm/screen doors.
You will be part of a team building exterior storm/screen doors for a National Register property in the Central Park National Historic District in Hannibal, Missouri.
This is a tuition-based class limited to 8 students. You will be working side-by-side all 3 days in the shop with instructor Bob Yapp who has been a woodworker & furniture designer/maker for 46 years.
This will be an intense, learn-by-doing opportunity. You will learn why wood storm doors are important, what styles of storm doors are best for your old house or building, how to measure an opening for a storm door, how to grade/pick lumber, storm door construction, glass/screen installation weather-stripping & installation techniques.
We will be constructing combination wood storm/screen doors with removable and interchangeable, wood framed, screen and glass panels. At the end of the three days you will know from beginning to end, how to completely build a wooden storm/screen door. All students completing the class will receive a “Certificate of Completion” and backup materials.
Homeowners, small contractors, preservation staff, preservation commission members, preservation students and historic building owners will all benefit from this hands-on, traditional training event. All skill levels are encouraged to sign up.
Now for the COVID part of this workshop. It is nearly impossible to keep 6 feet separation during class. We can keep separation at lunch and on the huge porch in the evenings. As such, I am requiring every student to bring their personal COVID mask and wear it during class. I know it’s a pain, but there is no reason for us to put each other at risk. Sort of the new reality in the world. We were spotless before, but now we have serious COVID cleaning protocols for the Inn and the School, also for your safety. And of course, if you’re not feeling well, please do not come.
Tuition for this three-day workshop is $475 and includes fresh ground morning coffee, snacks, beverages and a home cooked lunch. Space is limited to 8 students and pre-registration is required to secure a spot in the workshop.
