I have an extra-wide opening for a front door (42″) for which buying a standard entry door will be prohibitively expensive. I’d like to build one, but don’t have any stock that can be planed down to 1-3/4″ thick for the stiles and rails.
My thought was to take 5/4 stock, plane to 7/8″ and face laminate it. Get the pieces I need and then mill them to make the door. Does anybody see a problem doing it this way?
