Simply Build It

I have two front doors on my barn conversion which are of the framed tongue and groove batten type, I am looking for a solution to prevent the draughts that come through them between the joints, the doors are natural finish and oiled so the joint can not just be caulked etc

Depending on the size of the gaps (open joints).

By applying lots of the oil previously applied to the doors, you may find that the joints will tighten back up due to the wood fibers absorbing the oil and expanding.

Regular oiling recommended to stop timber drying out and shrinkage occuring.
