    Interior Closet Door

    Here's the completed version of my first door. It'll replace a cheap builder's grade door in our MBR. The frame is red oak, the panels are butternut. I used a set of interior/exterior door making router bits.

    its a great piece of work, doubly great because it increases the beauty of the room/house, triply great cause eventually whenever you sell, custom doors will increase the value or at least be more enticing to the next buyer.

    Thanks Bill...yes, a few years ago I made the bookcase and the mantle shown below. You can also see the "before" door on the left.
