How to Make DIY Horse Stable Doors

  1. Using a measuring tape, determine both the height and the width of the opening for the stable door you’ll be constructing.
  2. Measure your plywood, and mark it with the height and width you determined on the first step. Depending on the size of your metal bar half door, your plywood base can follow the exact measurements or they can be more. For shaping the side of the stable door, the best equipment to have is a wood lathe. The metal bar half door can be pre-ordered if you don’t want to be bothered finding a welder to customize one. Make sure that they’re strong, safe, and steel- or aluminum-made.
  3. Using the marked parts as guidelines, cut the plywood using a Great cabinet saw. You can try to use wood planer to produce a flat board with even thickness on either side. Look at this reviews of planer to get more idea about wood planer. For the rough edges of the finished product, you can sand them.
  4. Determine the measurement of the 1x4x8s to line the external edge of the plywood. For example, if your plywood is 4×4, you have to measure 8 1x4x8 into 4’ parts. You will be cutting 4 of the boards in half to make 8 of them.
  5. Using a circular saw, cut your 1 x 4 x 8s. Like earlier, sand thoroughly to get rid of rough edges.
  6. With an angle ruler, mark in a 45-degree angle to the end of every one of the 8 sections of the 1 x 4 x 8.
  7. Using your circular saw again, cut the angled marks.
  8. Put the plywood on a flat surface, then edge it using the 1 x 4 x 8 pieces. On the other side of the plywood, include the 4 pieces in the same manner. As you go, it is necessary to clamp them.
  9. Join the 1 x 4 x 8s that you’ve clamped to the plywood with several wood screws and a power screwdriver. On each few inches from the very top to the bottom, you need to fasten a screw to make sure it’s stable.
  10. After measuring the upper right inside edge of the box you’ve made on the plywood using the 1 x 4 x 8 edging to the lower left inside edge, you can now cut 2 pieces of 1 x 4 x 8.
  11. With the width of the 1 x 4 x 8, simply cut and make a mark at the center part of every end of the two pieces.
  12. Make a 45-degree angle from the said center point downward in every area. You’ll make a drawing that is similar to the letter V. Repeat this step on the other end. Do both with the other piece.
  13. After cutting every angled mark, you can sand it to get rid of rough edges.
  14. Slid the cut pieces into the plywood door, stretching diagonally. On every side, there must be one piece inserted. To hold them tightly, clamp at the corners.
  15. Fasten both diagonal pieces with a power screwdriver and wood screws.
  16. Include the hinges and hardware with a power screwdriver and an accompanying tool.
  17. Now it’s time to attach the door by fastening the end of the hinges to the wood in front of the horse stable. Using lever, you can check if it is hung
