    Very nice! Are you going to use a stain or just allow the cedar to gray naturally? Both ways look good in their own way. And, speaking from experience on a personal note….treasure each and every moment with your folks!

    Beautiful doors. What glue did you use? I’ve heard that cedar is difficult to glue because of oils contained in it.

    I like your doors Steve. I look forward to seeing them hung and ready to use.

    Finally had enough decent weather to get the doors stained and hung. I had to call the city code enforcement out to do a final inspection and I passed! Now I have finally moved in some shelves to store my lumber, and get it out of my garage. With room in the garage, I can finally get back in and start on some more woodworking projects.

    Hey Frank, @frankm, I use Tightbond III, and have never had a failure with the Western Red Cedar. I also use a lot of Cypress, and have not had a failure there either. The Cypress does have a noticeable amount of oil in it, but I always wipe it down with Mineral Spirits before gluing it up.

    Thanks Gary, @gary, I stained them with a product called ReadySeal, I use it on a lot of outdoor furniture. I will usually reapply it about once a year to keep it looking nice, or I may just let it weather after a year or so. I can always come back and paint it later if I choose. Right now I really like the stain.

    Looking good, Steve. I’ll bet it feels good to have them finally hung. I like the hinge choice. I used something similar a few years back on a small shed. Should be plenty strong.

    Thanks guys, I’ll give you a peek inside once I get all my lumber situated and organized. I have a great love for tools, but my attraction to lumber is even worse, lol.

    Steve, This summer I may copy your doors and put them on my shop. The good thing about living out here is that when I get finished I call my horse over and ask him if that meets his inspection standards. He normally gives me the thumbs up! All it cost me is horse feed.

    They look amazing, Steve! Really love the choice of stain – it makes the doors stand out beautifully.

    Looking forward to seeing inside the shed!

    George.
