I am constructing the first of the double doors, in a roundabout sort of way. I have never made a door, and don’t have a set of construction plans. No doubt there are plenty of plans online, but somehow it seemed easier to not find them, and just muddle through – so that is what I am doing: making it up as I go, and just muddling through.
Let’s hope it works out….
From time to time I tackle the cypress lining, for a bit of light relief. I want to get the southern and western sections of wall properly covered, before we install the work benches – otherwise, it will never be done.
(While building the little wooden cottage on Fork Tree Road, I moved in without finishing the details. That was a mistake – a big mistake – which I hope to avoid this time round.)
I will post photos of the door when there is a door to photograph.

I am planning cypress for my upper floor–it looks great–do you intend dressing it with tung oil?
Greetings Richard. I used a mixture of tung , eucalyptus and pine oil for the external cypress. I think I will try leaving the cypress lining as it is: the natural colour, without oil – if only to keep the interior as light as possible. We’ll see how it goes. Cypress turns a lovely gold/honey colour when oiled….
