Cedar Door

On a previous post from February 2016 I showed some lumber I had milled with my new bandsaw mill. Just after that post I milled a larger tree that produced boards that were 8 feet long (2.4 m), 18 inches (45.5 cm) wide and 2 inches (5 cm) thick. The lumber has air dried so I made a door from 2 pieces joined together making a 6.5′ (1.98 m) x 36″ (91 cm) x 2 inch (5 cm) red cedar door.  It is treated with tung oil that brings out it’s beautiful colour and grain.

  1. Wow, that is a handsome piece of workmanship, Kenneth. I do remember the sawmill. The hardware is perfect for this door! And I bet it was a pleasure to make – for me, the oiling would be the best part.

    • Thanks Lynn. It was quite an easy project – the beautiful planks did most of the work to create a great looking door. I wasn’t sure how I was going to finish the door but eventually went to my old stand by tung oil. The more coat applied the better it looks and I was very pleased with the colour.
