Default 1-3/8 interior raised panel doors

I got the freud bit set for the entry and interior doors and want to know if anyone has made the interior 1-3/8 inch doors. I'm not sure where to get stock this thick and was going to glue up 3/4 inch stock and then plane it down to 1-3/8. Is this the right approach ? I am using only pine.

Hi Henry,
You certainly can glue up 3/4 stock & plane it down to 1-3/8". But the approach I would take on your material selection would be to find a lumber company or hardwoods dealer & but some 6/4 material. Make sure it is at least the thickness you need. I think this approach will make for a much higher quality turnout on your project.

Whittier, CA.

Have a nice & safe day!

I gotta go with Jim on this. starting out with 6/4 stock is the way to go. Glue ups are fine...but......

Hardwood Emporium in Elizabeth will have what you need. Elizabeth Lumber Yard, down by the river in Elizabeth of of 51. Good selection, fair prices. Rockler has some thicker wood instock, I'd call ahead. Down by Ross Park Mall. Check Craigs List. good deals to be had from time to time. Couple of private guys in Butler who sell thick stock as well.
