While I work on the finish for the maple, ebonized cherry and aluminum side table, I'm building a door. Here are the 3 rails, which are drilled and slotted to allow for expansion and contraction of the 5 boards that make up the exterior of the door. This is a barn-ish style door (hinged, not sliding), but with a little different method of construction. You'll see.
