Dustproof doors

Modern practice rarely provides for dustproof doors, although it was common practice in traditional furniture, presumably because sweeping rooms by hand raised dust whereas vacuum-cleaners are now universal. However, the technique is sometimes useful and the illustrations in 226 give representative examples. Figure 226:7 shows a door hung on centre-pin (pivot) hinges, 226:8 a rebated/ rabbeted carcass side, and 226:9 a grooved carcass side with allowance for the radius of the curve as the door swings open. Meeting doors must be bevelled slightly to prevent binding (226:10) which further increases the gap; but the doors can be rebated together (226:11), or a parting bead glued and pinned on 226:12, while 226:13 shows a machined joint formerly worked by hand with special moulding-planes. The obvious disadvantage of rebated door stiles is that the right-hand door must be opened first and the left-hand door closed first, and for this reason (226:10) are not now common practice.
