just a few barn doors from work that were fun to build, little bit of distressing on some.They were all built from poplar for the weight and ease of staining.

I have been contemplating building a set of doors. Can you give me a quick rundown of the joinery you used?

All the doors were built using poplar wood, and the colours are just a brushed on stain, nothing fancy. Thanks for the comments. And joinery is straight forward, built the centre panels flat, machined a light v-groove, built face frames to sandwich the centre panels between, glue and clamp. Like a 3 layer plywood idea.

Have your say...
