Building with the QuickDraw Pro - Weekend project

Here's the problem, an exterior utility door, that's got a fair amount of dry rot, and the brass hinges and latch are caked in 50 years of paint.  First it's a trip to Home Depot to get materials. The door is an odd size, 1" x 13.5" x 38" so I'm going to use three boards of 1"x 6" x 72" , so I'll have plenty of extra material, if I need it.

For tools, besides my Quickdraw tape, I've got a chop saw, a skill-saw, a screw-gun, and a plainer, but no table saw, so, I'll measure, and mark with the quickdraw, then cut the boards to 38" using the chop saw.

Next, I ripped one of the boards so that I've got a 13.5" width x 38" length, then I've used the planner to put a chamfer on the sides of each board, before turning them over to glue and screw them together.

This house is going to be painted soon, so this door is getting a clear coat finish, to protect it until it gets painted next month.
