Todays Evening Project

This is my sons bedroom door.... It was hammered!! I also hated the little rosette cut things in the panels....So I stripped the nasty 50yr old varnish off and went to town. I first drilled some holes in two corners of each panel, jigsaw them out and then very carefully ran the flush trimmer on the 1/8" reveal of the profile. I had to small blow outs...it is fer... but there clamped and taped up right now as I speak...prob almost dry now...just thought Id post these pics........

Its already hung ...see...lol.... I'm gonna leave it like this.....JK just some 1/2" flat panels and some 1 1/4" molding with a 1/8" rabbit. Probably gonna put 2 peices a green stained glass in the 2 top panel sections also. More sleek looking.

Just brought it in for the night and had to check and make sure that i didn't take to much off with the jointer..still fits perfect.

Young,
Was this the only door with the rosettes on it, or do you have the rest of the house to do now?

That's ambitious. Nice job, and where do you put your tooth when it's not in place?

If you are going to stain it, try your stain on types of wood you've used in that door. there might be a huge difference in color. good luck

I like the door it looks like new. A lot of sanding?

I know my stains and wood...Thanks though... And I just put it through my sander 3 times on each side, took about 5 minutes.

Looking good youngwood. Don't forget to post the pictures when it is finished. It's usually at this point, that the little lady of the house is supposed to say....."I like it the way it used to be.....put it back the way it was"

Boy, ain't that the truth!

Have to be careful at that point that the door doesn't hit you in the @$$ on the way out. I'm still impressed with the alteration of this door. Old is new again.
