In spite of being more complex due to the window, this door took considerably less elapsed time to make. The window frame was based on an art deco design from a Dover pattern book. There wood has been routed to six distinct levels, plus a rabbet on the back and a corresponding recess in the door panel. Same finish as before - saturated with Deks Olje D1, followed by 6 coats of Deks Olje D2 on the exterior, 3 on the interior. My wife is working on a stained glass insert to replace one of the plain glass lites.

Nice looking door. Front door? Would be a very welcoming entry to say the least.

Nice work! What is the wood and what do you estimate its weight?

The body is Port Orford cedar with a cherry window frame. I can pick it up and carry it with difficulty, so I'd put the weight at 75 pounds, give or take. I'm using ball-bearing hinges.

Nice work! :thumbup: That window frame looks like a lot of work right there, but the entire door is very unique.

The joints are ornamented bridle joints. The rails (the horizontal pieces) have a slot cut in them on the table saw. The stiles (the verticals) are cut down to fit the slot using router jigs. The stile edges are beveled, also with jigs, before assembly. The bevels on the rails are cut before assembly with a chamfer bit with a pilot.

I think I picture how the Joints look as they are made, is it a snug fit and is it doweled when glued up?

Here's what the joint looks like:

It's a pretty snug fit. No dowels, just glue. There's plenty of surface area on each joint (six joints, 12 faces per door), so it's pretty rugged. No dowels, no nothing.

In a previous incarnation of this board I posted on how to make these, but I'm pretty sure the pics are gone, even if the post exists. I've got one more door to do, in the spring. I'll post photos then.
