Attach Boards

Using drill and exterior screws or nail gun and nails, attach each of the mitered planks to the frame. Attach each pine plank so that one end of the board completely covers the side post and the other end covers half of the center post. The herringbone pattern will be created when the two planks meet in the middle.

Cut Edges

On the very top and bottom corners of your screen, use a tape measure and pencil to mark where the edges will be cut. Next, cut with circular saw.

Attach Trimmed Corner Pieces

Attach the trimmed top and bottom corner pieces using nail gun or drill.
