Door from reclaimed pine

I salvaged a couple of pine doors from an old cottage that was being torn down. I pulled the doors apart, resurfaced the lumber (to remove the lead paint) and used the wood to build this new door in a different style. It feels great to bring new life back into old wood.

The finish is amber shellac with spar varnish.

The door looks super. Did you use 3/4” stock or was there 1 1/2” available for you to use? Nice job. Very good save.

I had to glue up the boards to make them thick enough. The final thickness is 1 3/4”.

Awesome door. I can’t imagine what that would cost retail!
