I'm fairly sure you could cut through that door with similar ease, but it gets slowed down for dramatic effect really.

That said, from what I understand there's a strong gyroscopic effect on a lightsaber's blade so you need to anticipate and/or compensate quite a bit for that when swinging it or it'll go much wider than you had planned... which is basically why only someone trained in the Force is capable of using a lightsaber effectively. And why most hold it with two hands.
