A well-made and attractive door gives pleasure every time it’s used, but might not garner the attention of a piece of furniture. Time to give doors, and doormaking, their due! This clear and comprehensive book covers the construction of eight popular door styles, and also gives insights on the fundamentals: materials, techniques and projects.

Practical and encouraging, Doormaking not only helps you build your first door, it offers insights about wood and sheet goods, finishes (both interior and exterior) and tips on hanging doors. You’ll appreciate the companionship as well as the instruction.

144 pages. 8 1/2" x 11". Softcover.
