This is a 9×8 garage door that I built from cedar fence pickets. The pickets were planed to 1/2 inch thick and rabbeted on the edges. They were glued to a 2×4 frame with PL375 construction adhesive. All the hardware and track were salvaged from the dumpster except for the springs and a few bolts. (I had to buy new springs for the correct weight of the finished door). Ornamental hinges and latches were made from scrap steel and hand forged. Also installed is a Genie automatic door opener. All said and done I think I have less in this door than a cheap steel door with no windows. Not counting my labor of course.
