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 the circa 1859 historic Lamb-Munger Mansion in the Central Park National Historic District in Hannibal, Missouri.
This is a tuition-based class limited to 10 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 45 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”as well as a thumb drive filled with backup information.
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.
