In this video I make a set of custom Frame & Panel French Doors for my shop! I love the arts & Crafts style furniture, so i picked some simple doors to practice so one day I can tackle my front door at home! If you have been watching, you’ll know that its taken me the better part of 2 months to get my shop back up and running. I build a huge wall to separate my workspace from my new show room. So to make the entrance complete, I needed some Double Doors. So I build a pair from some reclaimed white oak and hickory

Those are really beautiful doors. Nice proportions. I like the extra touches on the trim and the book matched panels. I’m sure you’ll have no problem at all doing your front entry door. Looking forward to seeing that project.
