OK so I start a lot of projects but never finish! It just seems to me it takes a lot of thinking and pondering before I come up with what I want to do so I try stuff out micro scale before I take on the whole she-bang.
This is my first stile and frame door. I did it on the table saw, but that was before I finished the tuneup so I’m still working on runout and square etc, but I did get a Freud blade 50 tooth general purpose and cleaned off most of the rust.
I’m looking to reface or replace our kitchen and laundry room cabinets. The total replacement is costly, the refacing don’t look as good as the professional doors. My wife’s not sold on the Mission style doors either. I used a MDF for the center panel but the painting raised some fibers and left a rough finish. Also the wife thinks the panel is too thin feeling. No heft to the door compared to the solid wood panels in the existing doors. so back to the drawing board…
