There’s a lot of work packed into this 21 minute video I just published. This was a custom closet door project and I’m showing the process starting at the lumber yard to the end where you see the customer reaction. It’s almost the perfect length of video to make a 30 minute TV show… if HGTV would be interested in some craftsmanship.

Here’s what’s covered if you’re interested in a part or all of it:
- selecting lumber in the lumber yard
- rail and stile door construction
- assembly of doors
- adding a bevel to the doors with a hand plane
- adding decorative trim and wood appliques
- priming the appliques by hand
- spraying primer and paint using a Fuji Spray HVLP paint sprayer
- mortising the hinges on site using hand tools
- installing door knob and catches
- the best part… the customer’s reaction!!!

I hope you enjoy!

Two take aways from that video. One I never would have considered cutting the trip back to make the carvings look like part of the door. Such a simple thing but made such a huge difference. Second I’m glad you added the bit about the rubber door hardware things. When I first saw them I was like “wft is this guy doing”...then you clarified and it made more sense.
