Wood And Materials Used
Elm and poplar
I made this door for the bathroom in our bedroom. It replaced a cheap luaun door like I still have for the closet. This is my first rail and stile passage door. I bought the hit set a few years ago and finally got around to using it. I milled the elm and tulip poplar and dried it. The poplar panels are from 2 slabs, so the grain is continuous top to bottom. I chose pieces with lots of character. This is finished with several coats of rattle can Helmsman spar urethane. I’m hoping to preserve the green color in the poplar.
