A variety of flush doors are manufactured with plain flush faces both sides and fibreboard facing press moulted often with comparatively shallow sinking to resemble the appearance of a paneled door.
1.3 OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT
This project is aimed at using timber towards the construction of the panel door by the carpenters.
It will try to examine some of the importance of timber to the student while undertaking the project endeavour in using timber in the construction of a pane door.
1.4 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
The essence of this project is to draw the attention of the students, carpenters and individuals in constructing a panel door using timbers.
This research draws the attention of the individuals to the need of timber for construction of a panel door as well as its uses in storing and making a panel door.
