Choose the materials you will use to make the door depending on the purpose of the door.
Get some plywood to insulate the door, and then mark the doorway dimensions on the plywood with a pencil. With the pencil marks as your guide, cut the materials to the correct measurements while wearing gloves and eyeglasses.
Sand the glass panels and drill holes for the lockset. Then stain or paint your door to enhance its appearance. Use at least two coats of paint or stain to give it a smooth, even finish. You can apply a water-resistant sealant if the door is likely to be exposed to water. Once done, install the handle, attach the hinges and mount the door on the doorframe.
