The doors are a challenge. I needed to build two forms, one for the center and one for the two outside doors. The same forms will be used for the panels in the top. For the center form I had to account for the thickness of the door as the form is on the inside of the door. The form for the outside doors was the opposite.

I do not have a vacuum press but straps seemed to work just fine. The doors are laminated using six layers of 1/8” bendable plywood; hot hide glue was used.

On the top and bottom of the doors rails of Mahogany were glued. On the sides Mahogany styles were added with tounge and groove. The rails were shaped on a router table with a pattern bit. The styles were shaped with a block plane. Eventually these doors will be covered with veneer.

Your progress looks great! That takes a lot of planning and precision.
