How to Build a Home Office

Step 1: Anatomy of a Hollow Core Door Slab

Knowing how hollow cores are constructed is important to completing this project.
Hollow core doors are constructed with a wood frame on its edges and a cardboard honeycomb
filling the inside. This is then covered up with thin sheet of veneer on the front and back.

It is important to remember when cutting through a door, the cardboard core will be exposed.

The side that shows the inside of the door should always be hidden or facing a wall so this side is never seen when the office is completed.
