This is a screen door that I did for a couple who live down the road in a nice log home. I have done a fair bit of work for them in the past and they pretty well give me minimum guidelines . This door consisted of me taking over two drawings and saying something like ’’ It will be somewhat like this one but will have these details, yet kinda different than these drawings”’
The frame is fir and most everything else is Maple. The mountains were sculpted from a 1.5” thick piece with grinders/sanders/chisels/as well a a die grinder. Once the initial mountain and valleys were in place I then proceeded to use a wood burner for the shadow effect. I was pretty nervous when I was burning as I only had one chance to get it right, I was burning deep enough that if I would have had to fix something it would of entailed alot of grinding/sanding. After the ’’shadow’‘effect was done i then proceeded to dimple all the blackened area just to give it a bit more texture, for this i used the die grinder and basically burned in small holes. The trees were roughed out and then ground down to give a three dimensional look to them. I again used a wood burner on them to get the ‘shadow ’ effect but I did not dimple them.
The ’’back’‘side of the mountains were just gently sculpted from a 3/4” piece and a simple burn of some trees was done.
The trees and the front mountain scene were attached to the frame using biscuits/pocket hole joinery and glue. The screen was then installed and finished up with the ’’backside’’ of the mountains. Simple trim was installed to finish everything of.
If/when this screen is ripped/torn it will be simple enough to replace by removing some trim screws/ 4 plugs as well as 4 more screws..
Thanks for looking
