My mother-in-law wanted to organize some pictures in a French door on her wall. The problem we ran into when trying to find a door on craigslist is that her pictures are 8 X 10, and most French doors do not have glass panes that large. So, I thought the best way to get her what she wanted would be to build one for her. This one is made out of popular, and has 11” squares openings to display the pictures. It was my first time using rail and stile bits. I learned a lot on this one, but it still turned out pretty well. This pictures in the door are pictures her father took in Japan at the end of the war.

Great idea and great job. Think I may try this for my Sweetheart. That looks a lot better than hanging all those pictures and its better to hang one frame instead of several.
Thanks for sharing
