Re: External door question

2 options as i see it as I don't think that stub tenons are suitable for an external door. 1. If you are only a little be shy, do through tenons and make it up in the frame section if you are making the frame too? 2. stump up the cash for some more rails.

Re: Flat Panel Kitchen Cabinet Doors

Just be aware that the mounting tolerances of these is quite tight if they are to work correctly (at least on a large door).

Re: Centre door knob latch.

Never seen a centre pull have any mechanical action. You could get something made up based on a shooting bar into both jambs but you'd also need some for of locking action for it to work. Sounds great and would look great but not sure it's feasible (well within the realms of sensible costs anyway).

Whenever we have to do these we use a rebate block to create the flat, trim most of the waste of on the bandsaw and finish by hand. Get pretty close with a Jack and get a sharp transition with a rebate plane.
