Did this door for a new customer.She wanted something that stands out and told me to put my best ideas on the table saw, this is what I came up with. First of all I plane all my own wood to my specs for my doors this is 4/4. with .5 inch rails top and bottom and 4 inch mid rails with 7 inch spindles and 4 inch stiles with a walnut stain to bring out the cedar grain pattern

I can make it happen if you live out west. I have shipped a couple to Oregon but it gets pretty costly to say the least from washington

Nice. Tell me more about the cutout on the bottom rail. Lucky or by design?

A very awesome door, Gramps! I like the top n bottom rails. Was this natural, or cut out? Thnx

Great door GrampaJ…. if I’m not mistaken is that design or cutout to ensure an angry bear doesn’t bump his head as he stands and walks through? Just like my Grampa always thinking of everyone.

All kidd’n aside it’s a door you don’t see everywhere; and it makes it that much better.

Thanks for sharing ideas

-JR

First off I want to thank you for all the replies.The cut out is one I designed and it could be used for a bears head to walk through the door .I very seldom do two matching doors unless the owner insists on a copy cat . Thanks again Grandpaj

I’m working on a screen door myself right now. There’s not much on the Internets about building them.

Have your say...
