I haven’t posted anything in a while. It’s not that I haven’t been busy, just hasn’t been woodworking projects suitable for project posting. I’ve been spending a lot of time bringing my new 1984 sailboat up to my standards and most of it has been either non-woodworking or boring woodworking.
Anyway I hate drop boards when I’m out sailing and much prefer doors so I made these to suit the boat and compliment the cockpit grate I did last summer. They are solid Teak which means only slightly more valuable than solid gold but since I’ve ruined it by making them fit only my boat, I think I’m pretty safe leaving them in sight. :-)

Thanks for looking

Great looking doors Paul. I really like the design. First rate craftsmanship as usual :-)

Louvered and tapered, I’m guessing there was a little bit of tricky layout with these. They look great from both sides!
Every time you post something boat related I think I need a boat. Did I mention I know nothing about boats or sailing :)

Beautiful Paul! I love teak more than I love gold … lol! As always, you manage to put heart and soul into everything your tools touch. Have a fun sailing summer with your ‘new and continually improving’ boat!!
