After a pair of traditional looking wooden garage doors with windows in 30s style any recommendations where to get some made or have even considered making them myself have 1/2 router, Domino Xl etc.
Going to be painted, timber was thinking of using unsorted or 5th redwood.
Any plans or advise welcome

Easy enough to make yourself, I stuck with a traditional wedged mortice and tenon joints. (The Dominoes could be fine, I just know nothing about their capabilities for external joinery).

For timber I used whatever straight stuff I could liberate, all Tanalised, and then the matchboarding I treated with Clear Cuprinol.

I cheated with the glazing rebates and routed them out afterwards, it's all coated up dark brown and no-one's noticed that yet, you'll need to do those properly if you want 6 panes in each door.

Take your time measuring up and setting it out, and do all of that before you cut anything, don't forget to allow for rebated meeting stiles.

Lovely job Ajay!
I am sure both will be braced from the external stiles at the bottom rail to underneath the glazing rail at the meeting stiles.

Yes, good job that is ayjay. :thumbleft: I'd go for the wedged tenons as well. I'm not keen on anything that relies on glue alone for outside stuff, no matter how good modern glue is.

I'd have to say I don't know, and to be fair I've never used Dominos, but I reckon you can't beat the time tested ways for things like this. Those doors are going to be there for a good long time if you make them right.
