I made these doors for St. Francis Church in Muncie In. on the Ball State Campus. They are made of white oak with walnut onlays.

A beautiful set of doors.
Not being critical but I would have liked to have the cross pieces more matched. It looks like the matching wood is on the other side of the door. So that the grain patterns of left and right door match it’s patterns in the cross piece.

I would have liked to been able to do more with the walnut. Unfortunately, I was using customer supplied material, and only had 3 walnut boards to use. (the wood was harvested from campus property). I only had 1 board wide enough to use on the mid-rails (they are 12in. wide). That is why I had to do it the way it is done. I struggled with it at first, but sometimes you have to reside yourself to fact that only youself or other woodworkers will notice some things. Overall I am happy with them though. Thanks for the in-put. It is always nice to get opinions from fellow woodworkers.Isaac

Isaac: I appreciate your comments and I’m glad that they were taken in the way that it was intended.
I took 4 years of drama in High School and the instructor drummed into us the visual and what is the first impression that someone sees.
Most people can’t tell the difference but they might say to themselves, I like that because of the visual warmth that it exudes.
Again a great job and it’s very impressive.

My men’s choral group sang at Ball State, and I believe I have actually passed through these beautiful doors. Great workmanship.
