Hello Fellow LJs. I am in the process of building another one of my signature doors.
The interior and exterior door handles are milled and sculpted from an 8”x 8” saplungan post. The handles are one piece and is part of the framing. The handles are provocatively designed and sculpted to invite one to feel it’s undulating form and evidently usher into your home. The waved panels are spoke shaved to fit then pegged onto the braces. The button caps are of Philippine ebony. The whole door is a cacophonous display of varieties of reclaimed Philippine hardwoods. The door’s design is the same inside out providing the owners a functional, sculptural piece outside as well as within their living room. It’s a lot of work but I always love the compliments and reaction of the owners when we’ve installed them and eventually become part of their homes! Your comments will be greatly appreciated.
