This door is 7/8 quilted cherry on the exterior and 7/8 walnut on the interior. The glass was salvaged from the corner of the street prior to trash pick-up, it is 3/8 metal grid impregnated and tempered. Still trying to figure out hardware. Door is protected from weather by a large covered porch.

Nice job on the door. I really like the lay out of the glass panels and that figured cherry on the exterior. May I ask why you did not use the walnut or stain the walnut for the interior window framing?

Very nice door! It looks like the ghosts are even coming out of hiding to admire it.

Rhett, this turned out nice. It certainly is a unique door and putting a custom made door like this on a home is a wonderful idea.

Rhett, wow, wow and wow! Your vision in creating this door is truly impressive. If I had that door on my house I’d stand outside just staring at it. Seriously, that’s exceptional work!
