Going to make corner shelving with a 36” x 89” door. Cut it right down the middle and have some shelves. I think it’s oak so i’ll just get oak shelves to match. Throw up some molding at the top and bottom.

Try a scotch brite pad and some lacquer thinner.

Stripped it with lacquer thinner and steel wool. Almost went through a box of hospital gloves cause it melted the gloves after about 15 min.

I’m going to sand the parts that look like crap, cut the door in half and connect it at a 90 degree angle. Then stain the door again or maybe just a coat of poly.

I think the door is oak and I need shelves to somewhat match. I’ve seen red oak in the store but don’t know if it will stain up the same.

I ended up sanding the finish I couldn’t get out with lacquer thinner. Got some red oak for the shelves, 1/6’s and just using a pocket jig to connect the boards, cheapest way to go. I’m hoping the red oak shelves match the white oak door when they get stained.

Finished with a dark walnut stain and semi gloss poly.

Had an extra glass doorknob laying around and borrowed some hardware off of a door in the house.

Have your say...
