The brief was simple. A green oak door and frame to fit in a stone wall.
The size is another thing, 4’ x 7’

Ok it is a bit big for the shop, at least it aint raining.

Some of the raw materials

Layout is not going to be easy.

See how it all goes, only needs to be fitted by the 26th but they want it by the 16th and I’ve a CT scan in between.
I’ll keep posted.

Loads more details to follow.

I must get ready for my CT scan.

I made it in time 45 minutes ago.

So see ya all later

This looks like quite an interesting project. I love the rustic boards and look forward to seeing it’s construction and completion.

Too bad you’re a bit out of town, as it would be fun to stop by and help and learn from you!

I am looking forward to seeing the finished piece. Should be a nice compliment to the stone wall. Looks like a challenging project as well.

Jamie, this does look like it certainly would be a challenging project to tackle. It is going to be interesting to follow this one along.

Good on you!

Not as yet Bob,
it was locked on the 29th.
I think Namdrol got it hung on the 28th.
He should be on the mainland this week and I hope he will bring some photos.
I’m not sure how his email access is.
