Making a MDF Door and Door Frame (from a reclaimed door) - Workshop Upgrade Part 7 4.5

In this video I show you how to make a door. I'm building my new workshop door from scratch. I'm using reclaimed glass from an old door that was destined for the skip. The materials from the old door will be used in future projects so subscribe to see what happens! The new door is made from 12mm MDF and pine. I'm using MDF since it's more soundproof and insulating than other materials. Enjoy!

That was so much fun to watch!
Your skills are amazing!
I am going to try and build a door for the basement now, it’s an odd size and very expensive to have made.
Oh, I’m a new viewer to you channel, been watching for about four days now. FYI I’m in Columbus, Ohio - 🇺🇸

Good job, but a lot of work. I just used the old, solid wood front door from my house. 3 bevelled windows on top, solid and pretty soundproof and best if all, free.

Just found this series, really nice. You have answered most my queries in other comments but was there any reason for not adding a wall/insulation either side of where the garage door is?

More of a craftsmen than a handy man. Since your in the UK could you do a video if you ever get time or place on what to do with replacing door frames. I was thinking about ripping the old ones out and lining with timber like our American friends do that way to give a good base to fit door frame to rather than mess around with shimming out more than i need and finding a good fixing with different wall materials (Brick and black breezeblock) I will probably either have to get smaller doors 27" or make the opening larger. I might of answered my own question really with the amount of work that would take.

Think i might just have to make custom frames rather than off the shelf rubbish.

Never seems to need a plane or planer/thicknesser. Rarely even a router yet the results are great. Inspiring

Hi I've just subscribed to your channel and have to say I'm loving your videos. Can you tell me the make of your palm router and would you recommend buying one.
Cheers Terry from Gateshead.

Great video, really enjoy your stuff.

Absolutely cracking job enjoyed every minute of that.
Great approach as well. No commentary probably makes it easier for you to create but you did things so clearly and held camera position a few times to emphasise a point. Brilliant.
Very informative and super enjoyable upload.
