This is one of 5 doors I’ve asked to make for a house restoration project. Made out of solid Red Oak wood and veneered plywood. Completely assembled using Festool Domino system and Premium PL Glue. All rails and stiles were cutter using a 10” DeWalt miter saw.

Looks Great, so much better than those cheap hollow core doors at the home centers. True craftsmanship

Thanks for your comment!. I sure agree with you about those ugly hollow doors from the home renovation stores. Practically everything has been made meticulously in Red Oak to this house.

Yeah sure beets the home centers. True craftsman custom doors. Love the look of them. Try not to get a hernia lifting them. Great job. Jerry

Lovely by the way,

I’ve used the Festool domino to the widest and deepest slot cutting setting. Made my own dominos using table saw,jointer,planer and shaper, using the roughest grained Red Oak wood planks I have found at the mill. It took four dominos per joint. two up, two down at each end of the rails. I’ve spread just a bit of hot water in the slots and dominoes before applying Titebond III glue. It is a good idea to bevel both ends of dominos for easier gluing up operation. I wish I had the Festool Domino XL…

Did you use 3/4 veneer ply for the panels?
