This is really looking great!!!

Have you ever considered using European hinges?

They making hanging doors a piece of cake. Adjustments are simple, too.

looking great William. Blame the bad luck on Murphy. Are you going to try to match the fretwork color with the hardwood or leave a bit of difference between the two. I like it with a difference in the color. It makes the fretwork standout. IMHO
Good stuff.
I got a week off now. Shop time is in the near future;)

Lee, I’m afraid I don’t know what European hinges are. I’ll have to check into that. It may be something I will use in the future. I’ll be willing to try anything that’ll make hanging doors evenly any easier at all.
Dave, I’m leaving the scroll work the same color. When I’m through building, what you see now will just be coated with several coats of polyurethane. I like the contrasting color. However, I’m not quite through yet. There’s still more scroll work to do. There’s a piece of scroll work that spans 47” across the back of the top plate and stand about eight inches tall with a small overlay piece in the middle of it. Also, there’s a few spots I have noticed as I’ve went that I may sand on a little before the polyurthane.

I’m glad I could make someone feel better.
When this is done, I can’t wait until I get the money for everything I’m going to need to start my next challenge project.

Thank you all so much for the compliments.
There will not be a post today either. I got nothing done today. Well, I got nothing done in the shop anyway. I did have a wonderful day though. Actually most of my day was consumed by Lumberjocks. So I will be writing a post in my Coffeepot Ramblings section before I get off line tonight.
