You do not see many wall tents that have a wooden door on them. The door is made from 2 pieces of 1/4 “plywood, the door is stiffened with 1x3” X frame. The door is hinged on the outer frame and the inner frame door opening is 1” smaller on all 4 sides so it acts as a door stop. The door closure is a piece of shock cord with hooks on each end, you can adjust it by putting a knot in the cord. The door frames sandwich the tent and is held in place with bolts, fender washers and wing nuts. Jerry cut the hole in the tent with pinking scissors then installed large brass grommets for the bolt holes. The door frame is supported on each side by a vertical 1” conduit attached by a U strap to the gable rafter conduit to the tent frame, then to the door frame with U pipe straps and screws.
