present for my wonderful mother-in-law. My first try at any type of door ! turned out pretty good. Wish I had paid more attention to grain pattern on the recess though….

Yeah! From here they look good enough just to hang on the wall as art.

Very nice looking doors. If possible I would like to see the backs of them just for information purposes. You are giving me ideas for my kitchen re-do.

I think they look pretty good as is. I agree with Charlie. They could easily be artwork.

my mother-in-law went to tears when she saw them, so that was it for me I was hooked! if you can make someone so happy and touched they cry no words are necessary…....you know thinking back she could have been crying because she knew she was stuck putting them up in her bathroom when she didn’t like them and didn’t want to hurt my feelings… : )
Grant I will have to do that for you next time I head her way. I did not like the back though. The center recess is only 1/8 finished pine, recessed in 3/4” finished pine plywood (24/32 actual??) Then I just used a 3/4” recess trim…..there in lies the problem that showed not enough forethought on my part. the recess piece is actualy centered, sanded with router eased edges but is not flush to the door. I wish I had saw comming. actual sanded and finished interior of the door ended up looking better than I had hoped in the end. I will a pic for you though !

The doors came out really nice. You probably are the only one that will ever notice the defects that you were referring to. I like the panel within a panel look.

that’s the purtiest plywood I’ve ever seen….did you leave them natural or end up painting or staining them ? We all learn from our mistakes so that we will be better next time !! Great job : )

Hey hey, this is nice. My problem is the time it takes to build doors. It has to be quick. How many doors did you do and how long did it take you? That and I’d love to know what cutters you used to make the recess trim.

Got a question, what cutters did you use to make your panel cap?
