solid wood door

Ive been thinking about making a solid wood door going into my shop. The door i have now i a very cheap and hollow. My shop is in the basement and when i run my planer the sound is rather loud upstairs. It seem like most ove the sound comes through the door and up the stairs. So would a solid pine door do the trick or would i need something heavyer. Also would i have to worry about swelling in the spring And the door getting stuck?

A solid core door (ones with a composite core) would likely be a better sound barrier than a solid wood door, IMO.
