Redwood Carriage Doors

My 1907 farmhouse, has a carriage house where the original doors were removed and an aluminum garage door put in their place- it doesn't even close all the way as the door is too tall...anyhow I found a few doors from a 1917 house that was under remodel, dry rot, old paint and the doors were coming apart likely from hide glue failure over time. 

Tear down began and disassembly went well.
The railes and stiles are Douglas fir, the center t & g redwood. 
One of the stiles where bolts went through, cut out damage a plugged with fir.
The door after glue up, the second door is now disassembled and ready for stripping, and reassembly.
Doors will not be painted when placed on the carriage house.
Above photo from the west side, that's as far as the door closes...

Hi, Everett. I want to let you know that someone is trying to conduct a scam using your 3057 Franklin address by replying to "housing wanted" ads on Craigslist. They have photos of the house (inside and outside) that I imagine were pulled from a legitimate post at some time. I got your name by calling the Assessor's office to see who the owner is. Please email me if you'd like to talk/know more.
