When I was building my house 6 years ago and we were picking out our interior doors, we were a little disappointed with the choices on garage entry doors. The door had to be fire rated and we could not find anything that would match or look good with what we picked for the rest of the house. So this is what I came up with. The door skin is 1/4” thick, made of white pine and all the joints are rabbit joints giving the door a paneled look. The panels are glued to the metal fire door…. and the most important thing is they match the interior doors I bought. I also needed a small or short door for my attic. So I built the little door in the same way as the skin but thicker, and then glued them to each other (basically gluing two skins back to back) with the grain going in opposite directions in order to stop any warpage.
If you want to see what the other side of the door looks like, go here.
