No matter what kind of cabinet you're building, it's the doors that get most of the attention.

Everyone can see the doors -- so you want them to be attractive. And everyone will interact with them, too -- so you want them to be sturdy and functional.

In this new DVD on Building Doors, master woodworker Andy Rae shows you how to build all kinds of doors -- each with its own unique style and functionality -- depending on how you plan to use a particular cabinet.

Because each type of door is built for its own specific application, it requires slightly different skills, techniques and procedures. And they're all demonstrated here -- with clear, close-up shots of every detail, step-by-step instructions and lots of inside tips from a real pro.

Here are some of the topics you'll learn about in this comprehensive DVD.

  • Design variations
  • First build the cabinet
  • Sizing the doors to the case
  • Creating door joints
  • Making breadboard doors, frame-and-panel doors, cope-and-stick doors, and simple glass doors
  • Smoothing a door
  • Choosing hinges
  • Hanging a door
  • Handles, pulls, latches, catches and stops

Whether you're a trim carpenter or a weekend woodworker interested in building your skills, this valuable DVD will give you all the advice you need to create any kind of cabinet door.
