thank you for the idea,

Although I have not made a door into a desk I know it is VERY easy to do. About 50 years ago my Mom made two desks with doors using filing cabinets on either end instead of saw horses. The only issue I see on this particular project is that the surface is not entirely flat which would require some sort of additional surface if you plan to hand write something.
