I dunno where you can find plans, but can offer some advice on building a
door. I recently completed a mahogany entry door with full glass for a
Frank Lloyd Wright home and had a great time making it. A door is really
just a frame held together with, in my case, mortise and tennons. For my
door, I planed the mahogany to 1 3/4" thick and ripped the stiles and top
rail to 5 1/2" wide. The bottom rail was close to 12". I cut the mortises
with a router and a straight cutter to 2 1/2" deep by 3 1/2" long by 1/2"
wide. I chose to make loose tennons and joined it all together. The most
important thing is to make a dead flat surface to assemble the thing on. A
warped door is no good to anyone! Also check for square. The joinery
should pull the frame square, but check anyway. This should get you started
on the basic construction. I'll post some pics of the door on APBW, feel
free to ask if you want more info.--dave
