 If you really are lego batman ... 'master-build' it


Seriously if it not in direct sunlight thick wide pine should be OK. Pine is easy enough to 'distress' and stain.


I do think you need a wide and thick profile.  with the planks too narrow the door will look too 'busy' and you don't want them too thin either as then it will look flimsy.


Recycled native timber looks great but it might be difficult to find in a wide and thick profile. Most of what you do see is either floor boards or framing timber.  It's also a sealed to work with.



Rimu is an awesome timber to work with. Seems stable, not to hard or soft, . I actually hate using pine as it is too soft and prone to warping.

My friends choice of building material was to use boxing timber for the rough-sawn look. But I do have some reservations but it was cheap and dry.

 

 

Hope fully it's straight - otherwise: cry

 

 

I've made a jig for my table saw to create a jointed edge. That newly joined edge will act as my datum for cutting on the parallel side of the board.

 

 

Nice! 👍

 

If I've learnt anything from my carpentry teacher (Mr Youtubé), it's that there is almost no woodworking problem that cannot be solved by some combination of jigs, plywood and/or a "gentle tap".

I subscribe to him too! I suspect there's another thread in this, but I also really enjoy John Heisz, Matthias Wandel and Cosmas Bauer. I'm still transitioning from DIY around the house stuff to shop projects (only got a garage a year ago). I'm still getting everything set up, and and these guys have a lot of cool ideas on shop set up and home made tools.
