Workshop Interior Doors #5: the glue-ups

515 days ago by ~Julie~ | 5 comments »

Now that the parts of the doors are ready for gluing up there are a couple things to do first. Because the tops of the doors will have plexiglass panels as “windows” I need to take off one side of the groove I made. This will allow the window to sit in from one side. I don’t want to glue the plexi window in the door just in case it gets broken sometime and trapped in there. So I will take off half of the wood and then put the plexi in and fill in around the edges with ...

Workshop Interior Doors #4: the parts go together

522 days ago by ~Julie~ | 10 comments »

Before I cut my rails to length I make sure the exact size I need. I won’t go into the fractions, etc, because no one will have the same sizes as I have anyway, but it’s important to check that the doors will fit the opening with the hinge and a space between. I laid my pieces out before putting the tenons on the ends of the rails. I also made sure my pieces of “panelling” would fit into the grooves in the rails. Here is one of the rails with the haunched t...

I try and work around that as much as possible, but I love the look of pine, and I feel the knots just add character. For the panels in my doors I was going to put 1/4” pine faced plywood. In my local city I could not find 1/4” ply that had two good sides which I need for the doors because they are seen from both sides. Instead I bought tongue and groov...

Workshop Interior Doors #2: the MATH

525 days ago by ~Julie~ | 7 comments »

For the opening between my front room and the larger workshop part, I have about 56” across. I have decided that I just want to use the left door (when looking into the workshop) on a regular basis and have the right door bolted shut most of the time. That way, just for going in and out, I will use the one door. When moving larger objects I can easily use both doors. I’m making two equal sized doors, each with three equal sized divisions. So each door is about 28” wide. ...

Workshop Interior Doors #1: the plan

526 days ago by ~Julie~ | 4 comments »

Somehow, finishing my workshop is last in line when I have things to do. I’ve been wanting to make interior doors for two places in my shop for the last few years. The first doorway is between my front room and my workshop: The second doorway is wider and is between my workshop and my husband’s adjoining garage: (Garage side blurred to protect the guilty) I am going to make my own doors, not just because I would have to special order for the sizes I need, but I’...
