Made these for a customer of mine. The house was built with exposed oak frame and the original doors and trim looked out of place. Made with number two pine at owners request. Stained then poly.

Hey, I like those. The original part of my home was built in 1912 and has been remodeled many times. The existing door openings and trim is still original, stained antique maple, but the doors are just generic white hollow core doors that seem out of place. This would be really good solution without a major investment in custom sized doors. A couple are very narrow (~30” wide). Just one question, what type of hinges are used? Pic shows what looks like a wooden stand-off for the hinge?

Thanks for the feedback. . .
The hardware is made stanley its for outdoor gate assembly.
I used woodblocks to have latch meet trim.
I also made a closet door not shown here. It was fairly narrow so im sure you would have no problem.
if you decide to build some let me know ill tell more on how I did them.

Nice doors! My dad made cabinet doors for my mom’s kitchen that are very similar to your large doors. I just love the feel that this type of rustic construction and materials give a home.
