Pictures from the casita sawdust mill

Finally getting new doors for the Casita(hate mdf oak). There are a lot more doors than the old Ventura and a big pile of sawdust to show for it. Going to knotty pine again. Only the bathroom door and the roof support/room divider to go. The rest of the doors have had 2 coats of polyurathane so far.

Could you describe how you built the doors? Is the center a single panel or assembled from strips? I'd like to upgrade my doors as well to nicer and lighter ones, and yours looks really good.

Very nice, and lighter I'm sure. I'm guessing you used a knotty pine wall panel with the frame No2 pine boards??? Raz

The doors are just b grade 5/16 tongue and groove pine panelling and the outsides are cut from 3/4" pine boards. I used 3 packages of the pine panelling and 3 8"x 6' boards and that did the whole trailer.

The instructions are here

BTW I am not a carpenter by any means and I used a cheap 10" table saw, a 10" power miter saw and a router table (to round over the outer edges. Of course there was a fair bit of sanding by my wife and 4 coats of satin water based polyurethane. This was my second time doing this so I had a good idea how to get it done.

The handle appears to be part of the latch? Since you've positioned the doors to swing down, they must be very secure. Are they a latch designed for RV's? Raz
