|Thread: Ledge and braced door|
My first post too.
The ledge and brace structure should be fairly stable provided the wood is properly seasoned and then fully protected against absorption by painting. I like glued joints and I don't know how thick your planks are to consider using screws but I would most likely use oval nails with the heads punched in so they can be filled and painted over to stop rusting. On a boat (and tongue and groove is used for deck and internal bulkheads) I would use silicon bronze Gripfast nails but I think that would be a bit of an overkill for a door unless you are living right on the beach.
