We are slowly converting the furniture in our summer home to G&G Gamble house furniture. Made this mahogany bedroom door last fall to replace a flat, painted door and jam. Just got around to making the stained glass for it. The design is a variation of Green and Green’s cloud lift. I know the stained glass isn’t wood but I’m happy with the outcome given my newbee skill level.

Beautiful work—you really captured the G&G feel and your stain glass is outstanding.

Man that’s a great looking G&G door! Your summer house should be spectacular when you get it finished!

I do have a question for you: How thick are your doors, and have you had any issues with the wood curving on you? And if so, how did you remedy it?

I’m thinking about building some closet doors in the G&G style, and would value your expertise!

The door is 1-11/16” thick. It has a plywood core and is skinned with mahog. I haven’t had any problem with stability. Good luck.

Your door looks great. My Wife is a stained glass artist…that looks great as well, from my experience watching her.

Thanks for the reply. I think using a plywood (I’ve even seen a video using OSB) core makes a lot more sense than using solid wood. Has got to be much more stable!
