My electrician has been good tome over the years. we work well together help each other out when needed and don't keep score on the personal stuff. A few years back he built a barn/storage building and left a hole inn the side of it for some entry doors. A lot of his contractor friends helped with various stages of construction and he has been using it for a while. His cabinet maker friend was supposed to make the doors but never did. He asked me to but I was always to busy. This spring business was dead and I decided to do it while I had the time. They are mortise and tenon mahogany 2x frames with 5/4 decking shiplapped board panels. The doors are 34" x 83" and weigh about 140 lbs each. My son was home for a week and helped me out yesterday installing the whole thing.

Beautiful craftsmanship. Any tractor would be proud to reside in that building.
