Oh please post it here! I'd love to read how it was done.

I've been reading a lot of Robert Johans posts lately. He has the one for repairing a door although interesting that is not it. Perhaps another one of his. I do remember that it included remaking the core of the door, re insulating it, re-skinning it, and installing matching wood veneer on the inside. Super good info. I've just been reading so much getting ready to do my own mod, I wish we had a private save area for stuff we want to refer back to. My memory is not what it used to be LOL!

You do, it's called an spreadsheet (maybe like Excel). Put the URL in one column, the thread title in the next column. My spreadsheet is over 300 records and counting. Sure saves the bookmarks! IMHO

I like Ron's double-skin "surfboard" layup with a light core such as foam or balsa. Torsion boxes are the stiffest thing in the world for weight. I also agree that framing for the mold is important. Any sort of lamination that you can do quick and dirty over the opening and then remove for layup should be supported to avoid going into winding (twisting). This means a frame or cradle. Doesn't have to look good but has to provide a stable support that doesn't lose the shape due to gravity sag and torsion.
