If you have the necessary tools and a little experience, making the door yourself is not an impossible task.
The quality of the finished product will depend not so much on your experience as on the accuracy and care.
You will need
- Not planed boards 2.5 cm by 15 cm
- Self-tapping screws
- Furniture glue
Determine the size of the door. It will depend on the internal dimensions of the door frame. Proceeding from these dimensions, cut off two identical blanks from the fiberboard sheet, observing the straightness of the corners. When choosing a fiberboard for a door, give preference to a dense, without deep scratches and other damages. So you reduce your expenses for finishing the door and the time to process its details.
Now take not a planed board of 2.5 cm in thickness and 15 cm in width and saw off two segments of equal height to the door and three to the width. Sand the boards with a coarse-grained sandpaper.
Lay one of the chipboard blanks on a levelSurface (this could be the floor). On it from above on the edges, put two long pieces. Put three short ones on top of them, with two short boards placed at the edges so that you get a rectangle. And place the third board 5 centimeters below the supposed lock and handle. When laying boards, also observe all right angles.
Mark all the boards in the places where they intersect. This is done to mark the cutting of the connecting studs. Usually they are made thick in a half-board.
Remove the boards and cut with thisCalculation, so that when laying the boards, there are no protrusions on each other. Only do not overdo it? It is better not to finish the sawing than sawing. Lay all the boards back on the chipboard and connect them. Make sure that there are no protrusions in the joints of the boards.
Spread the boards with furniture glue. This can be carpenter's bone glue, casein, or PVA. Long boards should be smeared on the side of contact with chipboard. Also miss the points of contact with the spikes on all the boards. Lay them back and attach them with screws. Each connection is at four points. Screws of self-tapping screws should not protrude above the surface.
Now glue the entire frame with glue and put it on topSecond preform from chipboard. It remains only to put it under the press and wait for complete drying. After drying, but it takes a couple of days, your door will be ready.
