Hi Rich,

I have seen a magazine article (but I can’t remember where) that use two layers of wood for the panels of an exterior door.
One thing I remember from that article is that the inner and outer panel were not glued together. That way the outer panel could respond to moisture changes from the outside and the inner panel would be independent.
I have no idea if it is an effective solution, but it sounds good.
We make things out of contrasting woods all the time, so I would think the rails and stiles could be made form oak/cherry and work out fine.

Sounds like it would be a beautiful door!
