Posting this only because the whole idea of it makes me laugh. This was a situation where the homeowner wanted a door to fit a crooked doorway. For some reason, I always get excited about doing my own tongue and groove work. Almost everything I do, I do for the first time. I don’t think this is too bad for a first run.

I like this project, exemplifies one of the many reasons for woodworking: an ability to create a solution to an irregular problem.
Don’t need no stinken store bought door, it wouldn’t fit anyway.
I like your approach to woodworking too, doing something new as often as possible. Great fun, eh!

Reminded me of this childhood ditty …
There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse.
And they all lived together in a little crooked house
