The first of the Small Door Series is an activity suitable for beginner where you build a miniaturised door using all the same joinery techniques used in any door and a lot of other furniture construction.
The first of the Small Door Series (there are four in total) involves making a small door (approximately 180mm x 250mm in size) with a sunken loose panel in the middle. The frame is constructed using mortice and tennon joints with the short mortice and tennons pinned on the ends (typical to construction of the 17th century ). The frame is decorated with a stopped chamfer and the entire piece is then fine sanded for polish.
The lesson takes approximately 3 hours and the wood and tools required are provided.
Once the first Small Door is completed, you can then move on to the second, third and fourth doors which teach other methods of construction which you can use in your own projects.
