I needed a back door so I made one. This video shows how I hung it in the opening.

ya answered my question about where the door came from, almost while I was thinking about it. From my construction days, I just use a circular saw. I’m better with it than the hand plane. LOL! Wondering what happened to you. Happy holidaze!

Nice job Andy – Want to come up to Auckland and do mine for me?

Seriously though, a back door is on my to do list – what do you think of using Macrocarpa instead of elm?

Hi Dave. If I had Mac I would have used it. I have some Oak too but decided a more precious project for that later.
I tend to use what I have lying around to a certain extent. You soon realize after hoarding timber since I was 16, that at some time it needs to be used instead of prized or just looked at. If I was buying, maybe Ash or even Saligna.
