The doors

This weekend I got a little bit of time to work more on the doors.  Frames are made of the straightest grain cherry I could find.  I used haunched tenons so that I could run the grooves from end to end of both the rails and the styles.

I can’t wait to see how the curly cherry panels look in these frames.

    That’s awesome! Getting two doors to fit nicely like that is not easy. Keeping them flat and square, getting the shoulders to fit nicely, fitting them into the opening… Nicely done.

      Thanks! This is why I love working with hand planes. Fitting those doors once their built is fun and easy with a hand plane. And! I’m get better at the frame and panel thing.
