Building Your Own Exterior Wood Door
We are currently building our own house. It is a timber-framed, light straw/clay construction house in Southern Alberta. I have been toying with the idea of trying to build my own wooden, front exterior door, especially after looking at the price, and dullness of factory pieces. The entrance is very well sheltered from sun and moisture but the door is still of course, subject to RH variation, both in the exterior environment and the huge gap between interior and exterior environments here in arid Southern Alberta. I have never built a door before.
Does anyone have any good web tutorial sources or specific advice? Is it worth that time, hassle and risks of it not turning out?
I included a few pictures of the project.
