Very attractive. I do not understand the compound miters as the door is flat. Very nice though.

The inside figure sticks out and the side are thicker on the inside than they are on the outside. Sort of going down hill… :-)

If you just cut the miter, you get a gap in the joint, you have to cut a compound miter, in this case 3º to the outside to get a perfect fit.

Nice tight miters JG.

What are the woods?

What did you do for finish?

Which way did you end up hinging or handing it?It kinda looks like its set up to swing out?

Its a beautiful door.

Jorge, beautiful work. I’m in no way going to say it was easy. But I will say that I think I can do that. That’s a real important thing for me to say because that door is awesome. I’m adding this beauty to my favorites. If I’m lucky, we’ll have a similar one come this spring. Thank you very much for sharing!

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Brandon, it is all stained and straight pine, finish is polyurethane with accelerator, it has a pivot point for swinging, it was too heavy to use regular hinges.

Mark, when I was told this was an easy door to make, my first thought was that it was not how easy or hard to make was, but how well the design fit with the existing house. I have no doubt you can make the door, if you are careful with the miters it is very simple, just remember to route a space smaller than the miters so that you can fit it all and have an overhang. Good luck with your door and if you need any help please do not hesitate to shoot me a PM.

That is one cool looking door. A lot of work went into it. Did you put the lockset on it already? Because I don’t see it. As for the buffoon who said it was easy, challenge him to make one just like it. That should shut him up.

The nice thing about a door is it has two sides. You on one and your buddy on the other. Fantastic job.

The design looks perfect.
