horns arc left on for fixings at the head and in. iron plugs driven in the feet of the jambs for fixing iu the stone sill.
Commence with the plan, drawing the stile,s of the door first to the given dimensions. Construct the frame around these, drawing the sight lines first, \ in. within the edges of the door. Divide up the panel equally; next the vertical section at a convenient distance from the boundary of the elevation, the position of which can be seen in the plan. Hero, first draw in height and thickness of door, then head of frame, the detail being taken from the enlarged details shown in Fig. 7. Set off the middle ledge 3 ft. \ in. above the ground and its width 8| in. down ; lift the bottom ledge 2 in. clear of the ground and weather the top edges | in. Put in minor details, then project from the two sections into the elevation, starting with the frame and finishing with the hinges.
The four panel door (Figs. 4-6) is shown with alternative treatment of the panels : on the left, the stile is removed to show the method of forming the tenons, and plain panels are shown ; these are described simply as " square panel " or " square both sides." It would be clearer if described as " square and sunk " ; the term " square " really refers to the framing which is not moulded, or is left square, the panel is rightly described as sunk to distinguish it from a flush panel with winch the framing might also be " square."
The treatment 011 the right side is usually described as "moulded and square," sometimes as "moulded one side and square sunk." Planted (that is, stuck separately and nailed in) mouldings are always understood, unless " solid " or " stuck " is specified. The student will of course understand that a door will be treated throughout in one or other of the given methods, and not as shown with two methods in one door. When the panels are moulded on both sides, as in the enlarged detail of Fig. 4, it is described as panelled, and moulded both sides, sometimes, as twice moulded.
The instructions for drawing the other door on the same plate will serve also for this one. In drawing the mouldings
