How to build rustic (cedar) overlay doors for BGE table

I'm building a table for my large BGE and the one side of the table will have either one or two (haven't decided yet) doors.  I have 2 questions:

1. How would I go about building these door(s) out of cedar (to match the rest of the table)?  These doors will be overlaying the trim.
2. Where can I find rustic hardware (door pulls and hinges) to go with these doors and table?

Thanks for any advice.

    Stile and rail construction for the doors.  You can buy a router bit kit to do this from Harbor Freight.

    Rustic hardware - amazon sells it.  There are a number of places that specialize in cast or blacksmithed hardware.  Cast will rust less.  or you can go with brass, bronze or (not rustic) stainless.

    Why cabinet doors? Why not a large face for a big drawer? You really want to bend down and dig in the back of the cabinet for something? Or would you rather have the whole thing pull out as a drawer and you can easily access anything stored in there? That's what I did.

    Depends how rustic you mean. If the door will overlay the cabinet, maybe a 'board and batten' construction. There needs to be no danger of it binding when it swells up from moisture, though. A good place for all kinds of hardware is Lee Valley.

  • I've decided I'm going to build a set of overlay board and batten doors for my BGE table.  I finally found the door pulls that I was looking for but now I'm trying to figure out what kind of hinge to get.  Hinges have always perplexed me....dependent on the type of door I'm installing.

    So can anybody suggest what type of hinge I should install for a board and batten overlay door?  I'll be attaching the hinges to the 4x4 legs of the table so I have plenty of real estate.  There are so many different hinges on the market....and I have no idea what type/style to use.
