I ripped this old door on my table saw with the help of a neighbor. This was a solid and very heavy door, impossible to handle by myself.
After I ripped it I needed to do a little repair on it. Some of the dowels were cut in half.
This door had many layers of paint. I decided to let mother nature help me “weather” the paint off. I actually cut the door at the end of April, and here it is October and this project is finally completed. FYI I do not recommend this method of stripping paint.
When it got to this point I used a paint stripper to remove the remnants of paint.
Then I sanded it. Because I had left it out in the weather for so long some of the joints needed to be fixed.
