reconstructing doors

Got a problem.  The passenger (right) side door is warped.  I have to redo it – rather, them.  Pain in the butt.  Floyd and I worked hard at creating these doors.  We spent hours putting them together.  But somehow during the winter they warped.  Well, one did.  The other is fine.  What happened?  Moisture?  Bad lumber?  Who knows.  So … here goes.

I’ve taken the door off the trailer and taken the window out to use in the next door.  I bought another new sheet of 5/8″ spruce ply.  Hopefully the ply will hold its shape better.
