This project is a pair of 8'-2" high x 42" wide x 2 3/4" thick solid mesquite doors. The pattern is inspired by antique Mexican style doors. The doors will have a large 45 degree bevel around each of the thick raised panels. The photos below show one of the completed doors along with photos of the doors in progress including an exploded view showing the traditional mortise and tenon construction I use.

Each door is shipped in a custom crate and are surrounded with 2" of foam padding. Extra items like door jambs and thresholds are layered on more foam and locked in place for shipping. The crates for this project were 9'-8" long x 4' wide x 15" high and weighed 600 lbs each when completed.
