Hi Woodworking enthusiasts,
Welcome back to part two. In this video I show you how I make ledged doors.
This is a very simple, way to make doors but it must be done correctly.
I have seen these doors made incorrectly time and time again, and I have to admit by myself as well when I first started out.
This style of construction was one of the early styles of door, and it is a great way to make a wooden door that stays straight and stays the same size (within reason).
It is not as advanced as panelled construction but still very popular and fashionable.
These doors that I am making only have ledges but some designs have diagonal braces.
I have tongue and grooved the boards and then I spot glue and screw the ledges on.
I make sure not to push the boards too tightly together as this could be as problem if the doors expand.
This simple but effective style is great if done right and as always the smallest details count.
If you have any questions about woodwork, furniture or being self employed as a crafts person let me know.
I know my wood and I have spent years teaching myself furniture making , furniture history as well as living it as a self employed cabinet maker .
I am also in the process of writing a

Part 2: Tools and machinery
Part 3: Finding a good timber yard
Part 4: Deciding what type of woodwork you are going to do.

Still I am learning every day and the journey is the point.
