I am in the process of moving into an older house. The front door needed replaced and was a very odd size, so I decided to build one myself. I used alot of recycled material. The panels are made from old stair treads that I found in a storage building. The rails and stiles were left overs from a compression test study completed a few years ago at the university. This was my first attempt at anything with raised panels. It was also my first project using my new rocker mast-r-fence (which is awesome btw).

oh, sorry about that, forgot the L. It’s supposed to be Rockler. I recently bought a new rockler mast-r-fence for my router table.

What did you finish it with to keep it from swelling and shrinking so much? Any construction details on how to keep it from warping? Looks good!
