My cousin asked If I could fix one of his out doors. He explained that a friend of his who is not a carpenter made him a traditional-looking door of a simple Wood door by making it thicker and he made it to look like an old door.
My cousin doesnt use it in the winter time so the snow rises 1/3 of the hight of the door an rests there until it melts and it might be +- 6months. The reasons to the rot is alkyd paint and the snow/wather.
Here some pics of the job. First day about 6h I removed the rotten wood and glued slovely grown Finnish pine instead with the heart outwards with PVAc D3. The first paint layer is Zink+linseedoil and the red is alkydoil paint

Nice job. Those considering building their doors should be aware that when the door frame gets oversized the price of the lockset does the same. I have 2 "built" doors keyed alike and the locks failed due to having a "normal" width lockset that someone put in a double thickness frame. Rather than paying $200 + (each) I recessed the new locksets and put push plates over them. Just saying...............
