this little door is for the next bunch of fresh students….thay have 6 weeks to prove they can stay on the joinery course,they are only in 1 day per week so in total they have 6 days to complete the given tasks.
its only 600×300mm in size..the timber section are 60×30mm for the jambs and top rail 70×30mm for the mid and bottom rail..and all joints are standared for a propper door…..just a bit smaller….the rebates are 20×10mm and the shamfer is done by hand as are the scribed joints….there be no miters in this little project except on the beading for the panel….im evil to my students….im old school at heart and believe in sweating mind body and sole to achieve a better understanding and respect for what they are working towards..i thank you

cwdance1 i need you to teaach me…love your workmanship…the rest of the course is as following…external door frame with rebates and moulding scribed to perfection and sanded well….then a window with a opening sash again with mouldings and rebates and hand scribed..the small sash has franked haunch tenons which is a nice little curve ball…then full size door.( the door is then given to the carpenters to practice their door fitting exercise )...then followed be a strait flight of stairs and that leaves a cabinet to finish again they are reused for when the carpenters reach the kitchen fitting section…but then…........the final test is given….the phaze test is where we give them the spec sheet and materials and we…...leave them alone…sit back and watch to check their learning…all the joinery sections need a full size rod/picture drawn showing all shown and hidden detail..from there they can produce the cutting list to which is then given to the machinist …
ps….all dove tails on the cabinet and hand done..

Nothing wrong with Old School. In fact, we need more of it!

steve….while i have sawdust in my vains i will teach as much as i can in what ever time i have… joinery and carpentry is pivital in the day to day construction of homes and houses…any timber trades people need to learn as much as posible about this trade there is so much out there…i would love to be taught church work….the detail is mind bending…..so to any one out there…..teach me..
each year we are given shorter time span and less money but we refuse (as a department) to skimp on the old ways of teaching…..long live education
