A year ago I posted this http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...ght=small+lock and I told you that I started making a door to substitute this one.
Well this year I have finished it and installed, and here there are the first pics.
I kept them unposted because I didn't know when I was going to be able to finish it.
So here you have them, the door is made out of oak, the board where roughly planed at the lumber store by some stupid seller. I wasn't there so I could not choose neither the size of them nor the wood. As at my inlaws I have no tools and even less a planer I had to do my best with what hand tools I had.
I joined the boards using a tongue and groove system that I made with my handheld router ( sorry no pics) you can see here them in first dry fit.
Then I routed two slots on a square pole and cut them into short pieces that would make the G&G accents on the door. I hope that Glenn and Rennie will indulge me for making such a free use of them That fly was there annoying me all the time until I let it appear on the pic

After that, with the aid of a rectangular template, I routed the recesses where the G&G accents where going to be inserted, as I wanted them to appear on both sides of the door this was the only way I thought I could do it.

Then I rounded all edges both of the board and of the accents with the router, ( now I would have done it differently) and with the aid of a chisel I carved the corner nicks. They do not show clearly here but you'll see them better later on.
