We made the door frames ready for the panels in the last episode, and this episode takes a section of very ordinary oak to create a simple but very effective book-matched pair of panels. Paul wanted to show how we can make beautiful and simple panels as features designed to complement the whole without panel domination. The key is finding the right balance and using the door stiles and rails for the panels. We again begin with rough stock, true up an initial wide face, split-saw the 1″ material in two down the middle, and edge-join them down the middle. The process uses a few techniques to gain total balance, and this episode takes you step by step through to the fitted and installed panels.
