I want to make the doors for my Tropic Home. I will be using teak and can get it cut in any dimensioons, but am thinking 1 1/2" x 5" and 3/4" x 4"(or 5"). My tools are limited to a small table saw, circular saw, electric hand planer, router, drill, chop saw, biscut jointer and some clamps. I like a rustic look, but want a good, solid secure door. I am going to have to make 13 of them. I've attached a sketch of a few ideas, but am open to any other ideas. What I am most unsure of is the joints. Will a single biscut in the corner be strong enough? Biscuts to secure the center panel? Also glueing the faces of two 3/4" to make 1 1/2" along the top, is just glue enough? I can get the 3/4" tongue and grooved for the center panel. Also what brand of glue is recommeneded. All ideas and infom is appreciated.
