doors I made out of 4/4 jatoba, started with rough stock run thru molder then used patterns made of 1/4 mdf screwed to back of stock that was free hand sawn oversize on band saw then run on shaper free hand. then run thru widebelt to 150 grit then used pl 400 glue to substrate then stapled on grove. 1/4 inch reaveals between planks and poly finish. saus hinges x6 per door 3 inches thick for 500 to 700 doors. hafle thru bolts to create bifold and total width of 16 feet x 9 foot 10 inches.

Interesting. I thought Jojoba was more of a bush. You can get lumber out of it?

I don’t know if this will help or not. Jojoba is Spanish, so it is pronounced ho-ho-ba and Jatoba is Portuguese, so it is pronounced ja-to-ba. Or something like that.

I’ve used a lot of jatoba. I thought there was a new wood for me to try.

I’m not sure I still understand the process, but pretty cool outcome.

basicly its all 1/4 inch mdf patters screwed to the oversized boards that have been ban sawed to get close to the shape then run thru shaper to create tongue and grove. the pattern rides on the wood bearing in pic to get the 1/4 inch reveal and I think I used 14 left and 14 right patterns and lots of lumber, lots of waste as well, then glued and stapled to the substrate.
