Diamond Miter White Oak Door

What a fun project this was.  The original door gave the basic theme for this new one.  This door was constructed with a laminated mahogany stave core.  It is “veneered” with our own re-sawn 1/8″ thick quarter sawn white oak veneers.  The miter work was particularly challenging.  Each of the miters is “blind fastened” with a dovetail fastener and glued to prevent the joints from opening.  The overall thickness is 3″.  It is shown here before finishing.
