Class Description:

Need a door? Make a door! In this course students will learn the fundamentals of efficiently making a strong and tasteful passage door with a matching jamb assembly. This class will give students a firm overall understanding of passage door construction and fundamental practices that apply to a wide range of other woodworking projects.

Every house is a little different and thus so are the doors. Instead of each student making their own doors, students will work in groups to create a standard door. The techniques learned in this course can be applied to make additional doors at home that may have different size requirements.

Topics and skills covered will include:

  • Using a story stick as a plan to build from
  • Making lumber core
  • Making “skins” (thick veneers) and laminating them
  • Mortise and tenon joinery with floating panels
  • Large glue ups
  • Installing door hardware

What you’ll need:


  • Safety Glasses, Ear Protection and a Dust Mask
  • Measuring Tape
  • Pencil and Paper

Optional (If you don’t bring your own you will have to share the school’s limited quantity)

  • Block Plane
  • Set of Bench Chisels
