This is built mostly of quarter sawn red oak. There is some oak plywood for the bottom and the panels. The door I got from habitat for humanity. It is 36” wide and 79” tall.

Thanks. I wasn’t completely creative. My wife saw one similar and this is my interpretation.

Man, that red oak looks killer. I wish I had more room for one of these with a nice cushy seat…......................

I got this wood for free when a friend’s grandfather passed away. He had a bunch of rough saw wood and they just needed someone to take it away. I had it for over a year until I just started planing some of it a few weeks ago. That’s when I realized it was quarter sawn. It has some great figure.

Nice project. Of course… the ReStore here has lots and lots of doors… but none look as nice as this.
Beautiful Oak.

So cool and functional build. Like the idea on the white door and red oak is gorgeous. Great work!
