Cafe' Doors
Thu Nov 20, 2008 9:48 am


Hi, I'm new to the group but have had an 01 since 1996. I'm looking for some help with converting a few curb side doors to cafe' style. I had a set of drawings from Dave Galey's website but can't find them anymore. Can anyone help me out with a simple plan.

Thanks, Big Jim

Jim, I am in the middle of fabricating my doors now. I dont have any plans as I am working it out as I go. If your not in a hurry you can follow along on my blogspot or I have the "Bible" and I will send you the pages you have lost. I am not fabing ours anything like Daves though. I am fabricating something closer to a regular set of doors with a jamb and all so they are pretty intense as far as the fabrication goes. Let me know if you need the pages and I will get them to you.

Andy, Id like to see some pics of your doors. I am working out the details on ours now and Im not to far along to change something. I am waiting on some hardware now to proceed with the fabrication. By the way its good to see you here on the best Eagle site on the web.

Don't forget to think about pantograph doors. Some folks think cafe doors are a bit of a problem in tight quarters (like my shop :D )

Sonnie Gray started a thread in the Eagle Tech forum that you guys should take a look at: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=141

Pictures would be great, yes please send. Dave Galey did send me the pages from his book with plans that should help ,but a picture is worth a bunch of words

Thanks, Jim

Hi Andy. Kind of lost here. I did not see any pictures of cafe doors on your project page on this website. Are you referring to another project page on a different site? If so, would you give us a link? Also, consider posting them to your project page on this website.

If you have an "off-site" project page, you might consider putting it in your signature file like I do.

Thanks, Jim

Here you go Andy. What you do is hover over photo, then a drop box shows up, left click on IMG to highlight text, right click and left click on copy, go to your project page and reply, then right click and paste. I hope that is clear as mud buddy! ;)
