Like most everything, this is a first… Built this door for our master bathroom. Loose mortise and tenon joinery. Rails and styles are knotty alder, panels are spalted maple. natural stain on the maple and I used 3 colors of stain on the alder wood with laquer coats inbetween stains. The entire door has 6 coats of wipe on poly. Whew! 8 months later and hundreds of trip to ther garage… All in all, I would do it again!

What a great door! Love the natural look of the wood! Laquer between Stains through me off. Not being a expert finish guy I would have thought the stain would not adhere once you Laquered. Could you go into more detail on this to help us rookies out please. Thx Great work!

Beautiful door, now you have to put wood trim everywhere to match.
