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.

Gav - looks like an excellent job. Would love to see the pics a little bigger too if at all possible.
Cheers

Some bigger pictures.

I see you've sneeked in a gloat with the Scheppach tablesaw too....
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:

(The watchword now is IYGIFI == "If you've got it, flaunt it!"

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.

Great doors Gav.

There are plenty of Norm fans around here :D
How long did the doors take to make?
