So I’m new into woodworking. My first time making rail and stile doors I made them with tongue and groove joint with a plywood center. Well 24 hours after I made them. I got my hands on a set of 3 bits for raised panel doors.
So of course I remove my tongue and groove doors and made myself some raised panel doors. (Which turned out pretty good for my first time)
So my question is, what should I do with these 2 extra doors? (Sized and made for a one time project)

Make some more and build a tool box out of them.

I used 2 practice doors as ends for a shoe storage bench we keep behind bedroom door.

What they said. Make a box behind the doors, and create a cabinet. You’ll fill it – you’re a woodworker now…

I second the shop cabinet, probably to house your new bits.

I would hang them on a wall like it’s an art piece. That would get it out of the way and could possibly look cool.

Save them, I promise you will one day be in need of two doors size xyz and you will remember having moved those 50 times and go get them. And they will fit and you will be saved time, and of course the space you used up saving them. LOL. I have several doors from cabinets people tossed made of real wood not the barf stuff and they get used…. eventually.

I doubt you will ever use them again unless you design a project just for them.
Hang on to them for a few months just in case, after that if you haven’t used them knock them apart, keep the hardwood for another day.

Considering all the great ideas I’ve read so far, I’d suggest you use those doors as tables. I know it may sound strange, but that’s what came off the top of my head. You can easily install legs on these doors. Retractable legs may be even a better idea.
