So, this family had a hole in their wall with a bunch of shelves in it. They asked me to build a door similar in style to their exisitng doors. The wood was pine and pine veneer plywood. I made the door into a “pre-hung unit”, where the casing, jamb and door are installed in one shot. The casing is pine, but due to space constraints had to much narrower than anything available at a home center, therefore I had to create an 1 3/4” wide, fluted casing. The only thing I wished I had done was added a little more red coloring to the stain. As you can see, the existing door next to mine has a reddish hue, while mine is a yellowish hue. It is actually more apparent in the picture than in reality. The clients were certainly happy with it.
