I prepared all the stuff for the door frame and planed the grooves to accept the door panel. I also stuck a 1/4″ ovolo along what will be the inner edges of the door frame. The ends of the frame components were mortised and tenoned and the ovolo mouldings were mitred where they intersect.
I ripped a busy elm board in two and rubbed the halves together to make the door panel. When dry, I tidied up the panel and cut it to shape.
The straight edges of the panel were simply fielded with a plane and the arch fielding was carved.
The door frame’s joints were first drawbored and then I knocked the door together and drove oak pegs through the joints, leaving the panel free-floating in the frame.
The pegs were trimmed and the door given a final tidy up in preparation for hanging on the cupboard.
