I made 11 of these 2 panel iterior doors, the stiles, rails, jambs and casings for the doors and windows was all milled by me, the hickory was from my property that I air dried for 18 months, the panels are 1/2 hickory veneer plywood ,the finish I sprayed on with a catalized lacquer, that was sprayed on before I installed them

Beautiful door. Thats a lot of doors with such a hard wood. The price was right. Well done.

Love the grain in the hickory especially the way you matched the grain on the kitchen drawers. Nice – very nice!
