Hi this is Jon on behalf of Expert Village in this video clip we would be making our doors. First I'm going to cut a chunk of material off at 13 5/8. Next we cut to 21 13/16. Next I'm going to test it to see if it fits and that fits in there pretty snuggly actually. So that is what I want it to be. I'm going to make a couple of passes on the jointer just to loosen that up a bit. After joining the edges I went ahead and marked my board and made a cut down exact center of it which gave me my 2 panels now when I fit those panel on there, there is a little bit of space around it and that is just what I need.
