    Man, I'm looking forward to this thread.... I plan on making some doors when we get our new place in Japan, in our "Meji era" part of the house. Thanks, Reg!

    mornin` reg,
    doors ain`t rocket science! i did a kind of tutotorial on smc about a year ago.
    here`s a link;
    http://www.sawmillcreek.org/showthre...oors+hillbilly
    i can`t view pictures over there any longer so if i`ve left anything out or you have any questions by all means holler!
    sorry but i take pics as i`m doing stuff, post `em then delete `em, so i`d either have to build another door or mock up a glue up to get the pics here.
    if somebody wants to do a screen shot of my posts and pictures and post them here i give my permission......although i don`t know if keiths permission would be required too?

    Thanks tod. Am I correct in that you dado the slot in the length of a rail and then glue the Two rail halves together. Then drill the holes in the stiles to fit the althred through? This is, as i understand it, a rail that is made up os glued up pieces.
    Question 2.
    What type of shaper knives or head do you use to make the groves for your panels and could you mod it for glass panels so if broken they could be taken out and replaced.
    I remembered the thread and liked it a lot, very smart, but couldn't remember where it was.
    My doors will be made from eighter ash or white oak. All the door frameing will be built in the shop, no pre-hung stuff. I want to make it all like they are original but useing your method of putting the doors together so they won't come apart

    P.S I would do a screen shot but dont have that type of program

    reg,
    first glue up a "core" using 1x material then laminate a face of 3/16-5/16 onto one side, then dado for allthread....after cutting the dados laminate the other face.
    any type of cope-n-stick cutters can be used as well as a simple groover...after assembly remove one side of your pattern to allow you to insert glass then run just the profile on some loose sticks, miter and install.
    make sence?

    Tod you are getting forgetful

    If you remember, way back then, I wanted to keep my own copy of this door making tutorial, as I was looking at replacing a door at a rental unit, so you e-mailed me the pics and descriptions, I've got them on my computer here somewhere..... I think I saved it as a word file, I'll look.

    The questions and answers from the SMC thread are not there, but the pics and your descriptions of what you do are, I think, let me see if I can find it.....

    I go it Tod. Thanks for the info. I will be reflooring the few rooms first before attempting the doors. I will let everyone look as I put them together and let you see how they turn out. I hope the look as good as yours and they should be plenty sturdy.
