Thanks Rich- I stumbled on your entry door before I posted… beautiful door! I just read through your blog and it was very helpful. Obviously I don’t know much about doors, but the blog helped with some of the terminology and standards that I wasn’t aware of.

I ran across a couple other posts mentioning using half-lap joints for the rails and stiles. Since I am limiting myself to a table saw for this build (don’t have the skills/tools for mortise and tenon, and don’t have the router setup I wish I had for this project), I feel like the lap joint may be my best option with the tools at hand. If these doors work out okay and they generate more orders for doors, I may be able to justify buying more tools (what a shame that would be!).

That and whether or not to glue the panel boards together (planning to join them with T&G) and whether to glue them to the stiles and rails or just let them float… those are my main questions.
