There was some discussion on a topic fairly recently about the best joint to use between the braces to the ledges. (I just notch mine about 20mm into the ledge and square the end off to be parallel to the stiles).

I've never seen one done like this below before, and I think it's fugly.

This is in the disabled toilet at Cors Caron, if you want some local colour, look behind me, the wife is sat on the bog with her knickers round her ankles, (on second thought's, don't, it's not a pretty sight these days). :mrgreen:

Not liking that at all ayjay!
The brace should ideally be 50/50 joined on the stile and the mid-rail as well. The dovetail tennon looks stupid and rather pointless imo.

when i make ledge and braced internal doors they dont need braces as the mid and bottom rail are a good snug fit so can't sag :lol:

I agree with Stevie & big-all.

Although I do wonder what the designer was on.
I would bet that he did not make it!

You don't always have a stile of course, only if it's ledged, braced and framed.

Must get the paint out soon! :lol:

Even with a snug fit everywhere, and even if it's ledged braced and framed it's still relying on the fixings to stop it from becoming a parallelogram.

I remember reading that the biggest challenge for an artist is knowing when to stop painting any more on a canvas and leave it as finished. I guess this door was made by someone with a lot of time on their hands who did not know when to stop. He just had to get the router out and cut those stupid chamfers as a final over the top gesture.

It looks shite
