Having just started out in woodworking as a hobby my first job was to create a space for doing this. So I recently built a garage for the task.

Rather than fit a conventional up and over door I thought it would be more appropriate to make some wooden doors and it would be a good early project to try.

Here are some pics of my efforts, I hope they post ok only I've not posted images before and I couldn't find the advise topic.

Chris,

I'm still only on conventional film so I scanned these in on the works scanner to be able to post them. I could probably scan them again at a higher resolution when next at work.

Very nice Gav,

I always liked those wooden doors better then that cheap metal/polyester ones

They also have a better isolation value and look much better.

Been watching the gloat format for a while before joining the forum so it slipped in.

Gav,
Thanks for the pix - great doors! You would have fitted in with the correct gloat format in the halcyon days of yore but a certain Philly kind of changed the rules.. :shock:

Hey Gav, Nice doors and finish.

On the first picture, it looks like you are building the cabinet "à la Norm" :norm: isn't it?

Yes the cabinets are "a la Norm" from the garage workshop episode. I have to confess to being a bit of a Norm fan and it was watching him that encouraged me to take up woodworking, something I'd wanted to do for some years.
