This lets you turn almost any tree into a gnome house. Door measures 12” x 9” x 1”
Bridge is 17” x 5” x 6”

Door is pine, hinges door handle, and window are hardwoods for added strength and glued together with waterproof wood glue. Normally walnut and oak. After I cut and shape the door I burn it with my touch. This makes the woodgrain stand out more after staining, of course is dependent upon the customers choice of color. I then seal it with indoor/out door poly that allowed the wood to expand and contract. Two eye hooks and wire are added to attach it to the tree. Eye hooked are screwed in coated with wood glue so it doesn’t rot at the entry hole. Great fun and popular in my etsy store.

Pretty cool Gnome doors—I’ll bet they’re a big hit with the kids!
