This is my first door. My wonderful wife who is deserving of better things from my woodshop than gifts for other people, finally has gotten her promised built in shoe closet. The closet was built into a void in the wall. The opening was not of a standard size so I determined that it would be more cost effective to build my own rather than trying to obtain a custom one. Given that it was my first door and destined to be an interior one, I went with the cheapest wood available. I scoured HomeDepot for the straightest doug fir 2×4’s I could find. I planed and jointed them to size and cut haunched mortise and tenon joints. In order to make hanging easier, I pre hung the door in its own custom frame. The door is now hung and fits perfectly. I’ll post pictures of the closet itself later on. Thanks for looking.
