Hi. I've been asked to make an inwards opening stable door and was glad to find the piece by Mike Jordan. It was a really helpful article and the door looked great but i had a couple of questions. Firstly I wasn't clear about the way the top and bottom doors met up. Although there was a diagram it looked like the door would not open inwards due to the bevelled cut designed to shed water on the top door. Is any one able to shed some light or are there any other pics of this project that would make it a little clearer. Nice work Mike!

sorry about the delay in responding, I don't look at the site very often. As I'm sure you have worked out it just needs an increase in the clearance to make the joint work. A number of my articles seem to have suffered from alterations to the drawings and also some of the text. A sash window drawing was altered in such a way that it would not have been possible to make!
Like a number of other writers I've given up woodworking magazines following a severe pay cut and a refusal to pay for repeat use of articles. Sadly they all seem to cost to much and feature to many adverts. I think it's a case of journalists playing at being woodworkers rather than the other way round.
