Hi
Cheap doors are made from two thin panels on a frame, with folded thick cardboard paper inbetween. These doors that is nothing when taken apart is increadible strong forming their structure where the paper fill zig-zag inbetween the two thin panels.
What I notis is the zig-zag placment of the standard size sheets, like a card house, where you try avoiding collums and rows to create a structure that will not pancake.
Materials come in standard sizes, and these is what form your creativity, you are used to fill up the spaces with standard size materials exactly like a card house where you try putting together a structure without changing the dimensions of the sheets ; you think it is expensive to alter the materials but you forget how much this thinking tigh up your creativity.
Then it's nice that we got timbers even manufactoring the core would allow any cheap material to form any _structure_

Nice talking to you
