This is a bi-fold door for the linen closet in the guest bath. It completes the remodel of that room and was designed to complement the vanity I posted a project for earlier.

Follow the link to the vanity project for details about the router bits used for the stick and cope and the raised panel as well as the source for the latillas which were purchased near Santa Fe, NM.

Good looking doors, Rich. I see you book matched the raised panels, I’ve been doing that on many of my raised panels lately also. Adds a nice touch.

Thanks, Tung. Learning from Charles on that stuff. I built the door as one piece and ripped it, so the center stile matches. More tips from The Man. I’m very happy with it. My wife does the finishing on these since she’s got the recipe down. She did the latillas too. I’d never have the patience.

Looks fantastic 8^) I still have a set from the big box store that look like, well, um….

The Panels really draw the eye. You mentioned last time you had thought about salt cedar twigs and went with something different. A local fellow is really into the rustic style and gets a lot of use from the salt cedar twigs. They are everywhere and rather consistent in size.
