Complete Project Plan: Build Your Own French Doors
Enjoy this premium-quality, complete project story PDF from American Woodworker and get inspired for your next woodshop project!
Building a set of French doors is a major project that requires both careful planning and milling lots of parts. This story explains the entire process, including using stave construction to create the stiles and rails, a method commonly used by exterior door manufacturers, rather than solid lumber. The key to this project is a router bit set designed expressly for French doors, with specialized bits that allow making muntins (the pieces that separate the panes of glass) and rails with long tenons, for strong and sturdy mortise and tenon joints.
Overall Dimensions: 83-3/4" H x 36" L x 1-3/4" D (per door)
