Hey Laura, Thanks! The tool I was using is a a plasma cutter. The one I'm using in the video is fairly inexpensive. If you want to know more about this tool, here is a video I did a while ago about it https://youtu.be/REZXOpgd8kQ Have a great day!
If you want a neat finish on the metal, you'll be wanting to tape off the wood and use spray paint, so that you don't have to mess with the galvanizing. That or the expensive elastomeric roof coating. I'm thinking the green would look good in your shop.
If there's a commercial roofing company near you, they get 5-gallon buckets of that elastomeric roof coating in a few colors. The buckets run about $800, but if you take an empty quart can with you and offer a plug for the company in your video or just toss them $20, they'll probably let you fill it up. Stuff's expensive, but properly applied has a 20-40-year warranty (depending on manufacturer) on a roof, so on your shop door it'll last damn near forever.
I both do and don't miss roofing. It sucked, but was fun. Kind of like the military.👍
They burn up quick, but they're perfect for thinner sheet metal if you don't have a TIG, and great for making small details on artistic pieces.
They wiggle like crazy though, but if you can get steady with them, then a 1/8" 7018 suddenly feels like a surgeon's tool in your hand.
I like that idea! I think you mentioned a while back about using some 1/16" harbor freight rods... I picked some up and used them to make my "sparker video". Your right, they burn super fast! I will have to give them a try on an actual project tho
I've been welding and fabricating for about 23 years now and prefer to build my own stuff ( table, welding carts, cherry picker, shop press, car Rotisserie) instead of buying. Also been building sheds,decks, garages, anything made of wood, and I have to say they're the nicest hinges I've seen made on YouTube. Great video and great job. 2 THUMBS UP
Great fun to watch and a beautiful outcome! You asked for thoughts on finish.... I would definitely have stained wood gray... and the rusted metal would be lovely! Try some test samples first so you do't worry about ruining that incredibly built door! BTW,... what is that tool you used to cut the metal..? awesome!
+ensign4Him Thank you so much! I will be trying some rusty panels very soon. I think the tool you are refering to is a plasma cutter. It's the one I used in the beginning to cut the door metal. Then I used a portable band saw for the rest of the project.
Very Good build. Hinges are Fantastic. I want to do the same thing with a Horse Stable project for the wife. She has 2 horses was thinking about making a Horse Stable with 20 Stalls; 1 row 10 Stalls per side.
I like the concept, but I have some criticism to offer, hopefully to be taken considered constructively.
First is structural. Your design is not going to be very resistant to racking. All the weight is being supported by the tin with small nails. Not a good thing.
Next is that you have no provision for a latch.
Also you left the end grain on some of the wood without sealing. This is going to suck up a lot of moisture and then you will get a lot of swell and shrink issues.
I think a better way would have been to make a solid skeleton frame from box tubing, and skinned that with the wood and tin.
Roger, thank you for your comments and suggestions, but your somewhat missing the point of the project and I mean that sincerely. The idea was to use materials that I already had on hand and come up with a fully functioning concept and design . Like many of my viewers, they want to imagine what they could do with limited resources and some brain storming. It might not be clear in the video, but the assembly was put together using lap joints with the metal sandwiched in between. The lap joints were then through bolted with steel backing plates. It's solid. It doesn't rack. Everything was then treated with wax including the end grain. It's wood. It's going to expand and contract regardless. As far as a latch is concerned, maybe an upcoming video is in order :) Take care and thanks for watching :)
Very good concept well executed.
If you hadn't mentioned the patina I wouldn't have it in my head now damn you! It definitely has a certain attraction doesn't it?
Please don't tell me the material you used for the hinges etc. was reclaimed? If it was I am going to throw myself off a cliff and it'll be YOUR fault!
+Norbury53 Thank you so much for the great comment! Pretty much every piece of this project was ALL reclaimed (except for the fasteners). Even the hinge material was left over from previous projects! BTW - DON'T JUMP! I appreciate my viewers and want them to stick around! Thanks for watching and the awesome comment!
+1234tric Thanks man! I was recently compared to Diresta, now Norm...Those are some big shoes to fill. Im honered to be compared to those great craftsman. Thanks for the support buddy and the kind words!
What a great Instructional video. This is just what I needed to see. you do such fantastic work. I love working with wood but welding is the one thing that I never learned how to do. Maybe there is still time if I can find a class? Anyway thanks for taking the time to help those of us out that are trying to be as good as you are and maybe some day I will be. Your great.
+Barb Walk Thank you so much for the nice comment! You made my day! If you enjoy working with wood, you would probably love mig welding! There are a lot of good youtube channels dedicated to learning how to weld. One channel in particular that I really enjoy is called "Welding tips and tricks". He has a learn how to mig weld series which is great. I'll put a link to that series for you down below.

Sir what type of welder was that and how easy is it to work could you please send me information on the type of welder do use please [email protected] thank you very much your video is awesome keep up the good work
Matthew, Thank you for the compliment! The welder I'm using on this project is a Hobart Handler 140. For this I was using .030 wire and C-25 shielding gas. I learned to weld 20+ years ago on a stick welder so I cant say how easy the learning curve is but I believe it to be very basic and something you could pick up on very quickly. If your from the states, you can pick this welder up at most big box stores including Tractor Supply. I believe Northern and Harbor Freight carries this model also. I chose this welder because Miller and Hobart are the same and their parts interchange. For a while, this welder actually came with leads stamped and marked Miller.
