I’m not sure if this is technically a “doormat” in the sense that it’s intended for scraping gunk off your feet, but that’s what I’m calling it. Instead, it defines your entry space and creates a unique conversation starter for visitors to your home.

It also makes a great gift project and sells well at craft shows or online. It’s the kind of project you can probably batch out pretty efficiently and sell for a large markup.

I built mine out of a single 2x6 redwood board I bought for $25 at the home center. It’s 8’ long and there was very little left over. This is a very sturdy construction that will last for years to come. I built my first one in 2011 which has held up to over 12 years of daily trampling and is still in use.

Tools Needed

You will need a drill press in order to get all the holes to line up. I also used a router to chamfer the edges of all the slats, but this is optional. You could just as easily ease over the sharp edges with a sander. Additionally, you’ll need a method for making rabbets along the edges of the frame: a router with a rabbeting bit or a tablesaw with dado blades. To join the mitered frame together, I used a pocket hole jig.
