Closet Door Completed

This was my first door, and will be entered in the Wood Mag/Freud Interior Door contest.

Red oak frame with butternut panels. I used a door making router bit set for the cope and stick joinery, and a plane v-bit for the grooves in the panels. The panels have some Watco Walnut Oil, and the final finish is garnet shellac.

Hey Knotscott,
Do you have some more pics of the entire door? Looks good so far. I just bought that bit set the other day at Hartville Hardware. I want to replace all my interior doors next year with shop built ones. I just have to check with the fellow I buy rough sawn wood from and see what he has available in 6/4 stock.

You beat me to the punch Mike! Getting some nice straight 7 foot styles in 6/4"> is one of the most important steps...otherwise, not a bad project. Go for it!

Here's the finished pics:

Thanks. I'll bet you could do it! With the door making bits, it's not too bad. Straight stock helps a lot, and you'll want plenty of hold down helpers on your router table.

Thats beautiful. I love the grain on the edge of the door in the second to last pic.

THanks Scott,
Looks great all finished. I was reading an article recently and they recommended quarter or rift sawn lumber if you could get it, for the stability aspect. So when I remember, I am going to call this fellow I bought of bunch of ash from earlier in the year. He was pretty reasonable and nice to deal with.
