Smile Great Progress Steve!

You've come a long way there Bud! Did you decide on a curve in the raised panel, requiring a router bit, or a straight bevel which could be done on the table saw? bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Steve, against all the advice you seem to have built an excellent looking door so far. Good job. Keep updating with pics so we can see how good she looks hung.

Steve great job!

Let's hope finishing this beauty goes equally well. I assume you seen this link?

I used a red oak stain and a fast cure poly for floor on mine.

Nice !!!!

Great looking door. I have been considering making one myself since last summer. I have to get my shop back in order first. Other indoor remodeling project has taken 1st place. I will have to post pics when I get them off of the camera.

Table Saw

Is that a Ridgid brand table saw in your pics?
If so how do you like it?

Yes it is, I like it so far... but I would have liked for it to have a riving knife on it. otherwise, it been great... it's nothing special, but for the $400 sale price I got it for it was worth it!

Thanks for all the nice words btw guys!

Steve, personally I'd just go with whatever you like for stain. I put a spar varnish on my front door so I could get a little more UV protection. It looks great but I've only had it up for about 8 months so I don't know how well it will last, long term.

thats awesome, employ a geezer to do the beneath you work, lol they just stand there, sanding in the same spot, next time open up some contact adhesive, it really loosens them up,




































j/k i know its you just bustin your balls lol

Fixing the falling HF Roller Stand

A little late on my reply, but that photo with the HF roller stand looks like the loadbearing point is outside the triangular base. Rotate the stand legs 180° so that one tripod leg is pointing away from the saw instead of toward it. this should keep it from tipping (assuming it was falling away from your saw).

Finished the door last year and hung it right before the big snowstorm. Will have to take pics and post them up, I've been extremely busy the last few years. Only reason i'm on the forum now is because I've been home sick for a week.
