Started On The Door Assembly

Didn't do much today, started on the door assembly. It goes together easily but is slow feeding everything on to the steel cables anchored to the bottom steel bar. Felt some tightness developing in the side guides as the door got higher, this will produce sticking. Boards are not perfect some have a little cupping and some a little twist. I suspected this might happen. Fortunately the side guides are screwed on , so when the door is all assembled I will remove the inside guides and remove another 1/8" . Since this is a ventilated door a tight seal is not important. Here are a couple of pictures so far.

The edges all have two coats of stain the faces will get a second coat when finished. So hopefully we can get it running tomorrow.
