this is a door made in collaboration with fellow LJ’er margy . http://lumberjocks.com/margy
the need for this was on a friday , i called margy on saturday morning and asked her to get some lumber for an external door and a casing , and to start an inlay for it .
i got back to new mexico on sunday night , and slept most of monday . tuesday i went to her shop to pick up the lumber , and she already had one side of the door cut , slightly oversize , and was working on the other side !
i went back to my shop ,with a stop at nmkidds , http://lumberjocks.com/nmkidd for some gabbing and tool talk , so didn’t get home till 5 p.m. .
i didn’t start the door , ( mortised and tenon , 3/4 ply insert ) until 8 p.m. , glue up at 10 p.m. .
back up to margys by 11 a.m. weds. and helped her glue in both sides of the door .
thurs. , she finnished it with maloff oil . we had heard about from bibb in denver , http://lumberjocks.com/bibb .
fri. as we didn’t hear any word from colorado , we assumed the week end event was cancelled .
margy came to my house to help me split some firewood , and didn’t bring the door , as she wanted to put more finish on it . at 3 oclock that day we got the call that things were still on .
she came up sat. morning , and i hung the door to the frame , and we drove 3 1/2 hours to aguilar colo.
and i hung the jamb with the door , and the planed event took place that night .
as daniel and his wife maria are excellent family/friends , and it was daniels 50 b’day , margy and i both gave him the door as a present , as he has always been the first to help us and others with any needs that arise .
thanks margy , for stepping up to the plate so fast , you did excellent work on this .
the 4th picture is where we were , at the base of spanish peaks , aguillar colo.
the 5th is some of margys work she gave to me as a present , lucky me !
