Anyone know how to make cafe doors?


I was wondering how to make cafe doors. They seem simple enough, but seem like to me they have to be sturdy to hold up. I thought maybe someone has a kit or template you can purchase to make them.

You mean louvered cafe/saloon doors like these?








There's nothing easy about making them. The louvers must be routed into corresponding angled grooves, and you'd have to make several templates just to do that.

The New Yankee Workshop made some on TV a while back. You can get the video and plans on their website.

This is no DIY job unless you are a very talented woodworker/cabinetmaker.
