Well these were a first for me making these Doors or any door for that matter and also a laborer of love as it was for free LOL
Well these are My Stable Doors…
I worked with 2×4 dressed pine and rebated both sides then used 4inch v sheeting to give it the panel look. I also put in some insulation in the middle of the doors to give it the weather and sound proofing.. They have Brass hinges and handle. The door is about 980mm wide by 2.1m high over sized for wheelchair access.. I did a front door and a back door for them..
My mate she well kinda stained them green by accident its a green wood protection… My fault as i had to go to work and told her that you had to protect them with a stain and the coat them with clear lacquer of some kind.. so when i got back up to there place she had stained them like you see…..

So guys what you think??
