are you using protection while sanding?
TOH had an episode last year (Brownstone house) where they fixed a couple of old doors (misplaced knobs if I recall).
I tried a cool trick for making it easier to scrape old paint off window latches-soak the part in boiling water for a short time-then pull out while hot and scrape the paint
There is a slight bevel on the rails and styles and on the panel itself.They are just recessed on the other side, right. No bevel. I've actually never made on that was a double panel like that. Usually it is a 3 or 4 panel door. The ones I see are usually in the 1700's period and instead of being a square profile on the stiles and rails there is a bead.
How are you stripping them, Rotex? Chemicals would be easier, Peel and strip, or something like that is especially good for doors that have lots of layers of paint on them.
after an interesting visit to George Washington's Mount Vernon estate, the tour guide explained how the 'visible' color wasn't the real color due to fading. Using some sort of fancy machine (spectra analazer maybe???) they were able to determine the real color-possibly by testing the inside of the paint chip (versus the outside-faded portion of the paint chip).It was close between a medium green and pink, mustard yellow was the third place finisher!!
