    Disappointing as a construction guide

    Wood absorbs and desorbs moisture, which causes wood to change size and shape. Doors are unique in that they have to be designed to deal with an extreme moisture gradient on opposite sides of it. Doors are often not solid, such as the paneled door with stiles and rails. Are there different warpage issues with each door type? I purchased Building Doors and Gates with hopes of finding answers to questions such as what type of wood to use, how dry should the wood be, is there a way, if any, to deal with the moisture gradient, and what are the specific steps used to build the most common exterior residential door: the paneled door. What I found instead was a broad overview of doors in general. Only sketches are used and precious few step-by-step procedures. The authors mention that oak and redwood are used to make doors and that straight-grained wood is good to use. Are there other types of wood that are good to use? Why are oak and redwood desired? I found no mention of moisture and the prevention of warpage. Good book as an overview of doors, especially those built hundreds of years ago. Not much help in building today's doors.
