Hi guys, I would like to share some beautiful garage doors I have restored for a friend. These doors were made in the mid 50’s . The outer frame is silky oak and the old centre pannel was plywood which I replaced with spotted gum. The new paneling is ship laped, I chose this method because it’s only 12mm thick and toung and groove wasn’t an option neither was edge gluing due to the weather and exposure they will be receiving. The finish is 1 coat of sikkens hlse (natural stain) and 2 top coats of sikkens filter7, I have been using sikkens on out door projects since I started woodworking 15 years ago and I have yet to see it fail.
Thank you for taking the time to read my first post.
