Looks good! I imagine it must have been very satisfying to fit the door to the frame and you will use and appreciate it every time you go in and out.
I have recently been adjusting some internal doors and they were all made of the horrible cardboard/hardboard over thin baton frame and full of staples/nails. Solid, real wood must have been much more enjoyable to fit!
I work in a factory where we make those cardboard and hardboard doors 🙂
No nails or staples though. Sadly, if all doors were built solid wood stile and rail not only would no-one be able to afford a door, but wood would be a lot more scarce.
Having said that, I prefer a real door as much an anyone here 🙂
Thank you. From a craftsman perspective, I believe we need to return to the days of making all furniture by hand. More jobs would be created. It could also open a new market for the return of mass reproduction of quality hand tools. Yes, production will be slower but this now gives time for the trees to be replanted/grow and yes, people will have to wait instead of wanting everything yesterday which interestingly is pushed upon the work force by who? CEO’s of mass manufacturing companies. Companies don’t want to take the time anymore to teach and train someone with a skill, which in the end results in “I need someone who is skilled now” which in turn results in “I don’t have the time to train someone” so here, push this button on this gigantic machine.
Thank you. The wood is store bought out of pine. So, will it crack? No, because the panels have been given enough room in the grooves that I plowed. At least a 1/4 inch all around for expansion and contraction; cracking as we know occuring with the contraction NOT expansion.
