Good looking door and frame. What type of wood did you use to build it ?

The door material was Brazilian Mohagony I believe. My aunt ordered the door materials from an online supplier to try and save a little money, but as everyone knows when you try and save a few bucks here and there it usually bites you in the but somewhere else. The materials came on a pallet with NO protection so there was a lot of milling required to get the final product to look just like she wanted. In the end which is all that matters she was very very happy and pleased that I was able to get it to look exactly as she was imagining. The entry system looked so good that I was able to convince her that we should redo their whole entire house. And yes the whole thing. We took it down to the block walls and concrete slab and started from scratch. We did a little over 2500sq’ the only rooms not done yet are the master suite, master bath, master sitting room, and her office off the master suite. We will start those in the near future. The complete job took just about 4-5 months to complete with myself, my helper and my uncle. We removed a very large rock fireplace, vaulted the family room ceiling, made a custom butcher block island top, installed custom kitchen cabinets and made a custom built in entertainment system for the family room. Of coarse new doors in and out, new windows, hardwood floor, on and on. I documented most of the work for a photo porfolio (for my own use) to someday look back and see all of the different things I have completed. Thank you to all of you for you comments. I myself am happy with the projects I have done this far in my life and look forward to the future ones. I will upload more of my projects to my website in the projects completed section for others to view in the near future. It also helps my potential clients to see what I have done along with my references. Thanks to all and have a great day!

A masterfully great job with this door. It would be nice to see some more of your work on LJs.
