Every once in a while I find the time to work on my personal projects.
Entry door, made from laminated quartersawn white oak, 2.6” thick. European 3-point door lock.

I posted photos of the timberframe front porch project a while ago as GermaninOhio, but somehow forgot my password and cannot retrieve it… dang!

Very nice work. Where did you get the hardware?

Very nice looking entry door. A great addition to the front porch.

Very attractive. Has to boost your “curb appeal” incredibly.
Well done.

Very nice. I especially like the windows. I’ve been pondering whether to tackle my front door. Did you make the door only, or did you also make the frame for it too?

Awesome. I need two new doors. I’m not confident that I could do the quality work you display.

That’s a great looking front door! I love the A & C look of it!

I ordered the door lock and hinges from my former supplier in Germany (I used to have a business there) and had it shipped to Ohio. I am not quite happy with the stain color though, as it hides a lot of the tiger stripes in the quartersawn oak.

Excellent work! I’m also impressed by the size of the shop, and I’ve never seen a cabinet on stand in the workshop before – storing the handplanes??

More questions here.
1. Did you do the pieces on a router table?
2. If so, what bits did you use?
Again, outstanding project. Thanks for sharing and good photos!

Everything was cut strictly on the table saw. Shaper bits for this kind of project cost thousands of dollars, not to mention the price of the actual shaper.
