Default Re: Truck based woody

I got the front door stiles laminated up and today I got a few hours to rough out the driver's door side. There are seven laminations of 3/8" maple and there will be one more on the outer surface. This outer layer will extend about 1/2" forward of the post, creating the forward lip which fits into the cowl's rabbet. Using this method allows me to bandsaw the inner door's contours to fit the door opening, then fit the last outer layer that shows. The 'built in place' finger joints created by offsetting my material should be really strong while maintaining a fair curve to match the vertical lines of the pickup cowl. This is a very labor intensive project.
