I had a very specific look I was going for on the doors. I wanted tiger maple that had a lot of color variation…either through spalting or through heartwood/sapwood transition. After perusing ebay for a couple of days, I found what I was looking for: an 8’x8”x1” piece of tiger maple with heartwood/sapwood. That way I could use the same piece for all 4 doors!
First, I cut it into 2’ lengths, ready for resawing
Set up the bandsaw
How’s this going to look?
Now joint them side by side and check for gaps
Plane down to 3/8”, sand and a light coat of BLO to see how they’ll look
All 4 ready for doors!
