When I built my workshop I didn’t have necessary experience and machines to make doors that I could be proud. Started with some scraps of wood, nailed together just to keep the workshop surrounded and where they are until today. This temporary doors began dragging, bending, don’t closing well and so I realized that was time to start to build brand new doors. I bought 10 boards of lyptus and get to work.

After 3 weekends, two new doors for the workshop. It still needs the 2ยบ coat of finish. The empty places will receive glass.

They will be installed side by side:

Nice work sir. I like their color and layout. Perhaps a picture of them installed when you have finished.

I really like the doors, How did you make the panels? Did you just rabbet the ends to fit into the grove, are the raised or flush with the face frame, I only made bifold closet doors and that were flat panel, as far as doors go.

Hi Eugd. The panels are just rabet to fit into the grove and they are raised. The Rails/Stiles are 34mm and the panels 24mm thick with a 12mm tenon to fit in the grove.

Excellent job, Valete!

The natural color is great, but the finished door is even better. What kind of finish did you use?

Congrats,

Hi Sergio, thanks for comments.
I used a imbuia colored stain (commercially known as Osmocolor).
