Here’s another raised panel door that I made for our antique ironing board cabinet to match the other doors in our home. I didn’t have any 5/4 material in my oak stash, so I laminated them . . . thus, the squirrelly grain on the inside of the door. All oak was cut and milled on our property and air-dried.

I was wondering how often you iron your cabinet doors …

Very nice BTW.

Madmark, LOL! Perhaps I should have entitled it Ironing (adj.) Cabinet Door so you wouldn’t have been confused thinking ironing was a verb!

Thanks, everyone, for your input.

I hate to admit it Elaine but, yes, I do use that ironing board. However, I ran out of gas for the iron. :-(

Very nice! The finish and joinery are top notch work.
