Hello all!! I am still trying to figure out this site so bear with me. These are pics from a job I a still working on, but wanted to share. I made the doors from slabs of band sawn poplar and walnut. The poplar had bark on it still and I had to run them trough till they were straight…. biscut jointed them, put some 1/8” steel on top and bottom to help keep them stright. The handles I like the best, made them out of 1 1/2” walnut, beveled the ends and ran it through the tablesaw, having the blade 1” high, to dado out the slot for the bar latch. I used 1” poplar dowel for the handle pin, drilled one hole at closed and one at open, then used my colt router to connect the “dots”.

Really nice work. I really like the latch. The picture with the rustic latch and the light switch looks strange, kinda highlights the span of time and technology.

If your having trouble with the site, you sure seem to have a good handle on it. They’re some really nice looking doors. I’m getting ready to start a door and matching sash window project myself. Thanks for some additional style to think about.

Looks good. most of the doors my dad made on the farm for barns ect. were made with a 1x brace on both sides of the ends. He never had any problems with them staying straight.
