hI, our framed ledge and brace doors are constructed using mortice and tenon joints from ex 4 x 2, the horizontal brace, also morice and tenoned into frame are of ex 6 x 1 1/2, 16mm v groove boards are used to face the door and diagonal braces of ex 4 x 1 are used. All timber is 5th grade or better scandinavian redwood.

There are so many ways you can make ledge and brace doors, out of loads of different types of timber! the 'norm' is usualy 5'' T + G treated bevelled edge, and a brace timber of 88mm x 38mm with 2 zig zags at the back!

id screw into the brace timber and not nail...obviously these measurements can be altered to which ever way and size you decide, but these are the sizes i usualy make and sell and they last ages....
