Natural edge cedar doors

Here we have a charming set of cedar screen doors, the top one residing in Alabama and the bottom one lives in Georgia.
The first features rough sawn lumber and half lap joinery in each corner, accompanied by a set of oak pegs for added strength (since there is technically no middle rail.) An old trowel found in a barn serves as the handle. This door gets to look at a lake all day long. The middle plank was scribed and cuts were made to allow the natural shape to drop into the top and bottom rails.
The bottom door is constructed from the same batch of cedar, but was planed and sanded to a much smoother texture, and coated with linseed oil. This door also utilizes half lap joinery in each corner, as well as the middle rail.
