Default Garage doors

I made a start on my next project today. After returning from the timber merchants with a car full of softwood I cut everything to size and started on the mortices.

Got these done pretty quickly with the morticer and then started on the tennons after cutting a test piece.

This was a quick job too as I used my 'other' RAS with a dado blade in it. When these were finished I used the router to cut a groove in the rails to take the VT&G boards.

While I had the router set up I also routed the rebate for the glass which will fit into the top section.

Then it was time for a dry fit of the frames.

I then installed the diagonal braces and did a glue up and by the end of the day 5.30 ish I also had the boards fitted.

Not a bad day at all. I shall also be building a set of gates to go with these and will be fitting them all together. The gates will probably take a bit longer as there are quite a few mortices on them. We will see.

I got the garage doors finished today ready for the glass and the hinges.

I won't be fitting them yet as I have a set of gates to build for the same customer so will fit both at the same time.

Alan, I think you're cheating by staying up all night, I can't believe that you can do all that in a day.

Ha ha, Harry I know there are not enough hours in the day but I draw the line at working through the night. (Had enough of that when I was employed) I do spend a few hours per night designing, pricing and keeping my books up to date though. I have found that if I do this regularly, like each evening it takes less time and makes things easier. Mind you I did used to spend most evenings in my workshop when was a hobby woodworker.......I just can't seem to get enough of it.

Allan. Just came across your post on your garage doors. Great job. I considered doing the same but thought it was too much work. I still wanted the wood look so I decided to laminate cedar on steel insulated 9' x 9' door. That in it's self was enough wool for me.
