Massive project and massive job for this one, by far the largest project to exit my shop. This is a stave-core built door measuring 96”x42” and a pair of 21” sidelites all with riftsawn Sapele. The arch running across the top is a 160” radius arch with matching trim and of course jams. Every piece of Sapele here is from the same log allowing for some pretty easy matching of the grain as you might imagine.
All the components are pinned mortise and tenon construction, The door is 6” rails and stiles with an 11” kick rail, Each sidelite has a matched stiles created by doing the staves all the same and splitting them down the center to create the bookmatched look and the 3” stiles required for them. The glass is a double paned unit I outsourced to a glass company as to not have to support any moisture issues later down the road.
This is complete on my end though the interior needs to be trimmed out by the finish carpenters, as this is a new construction, and additional decorative iron work will be added closer to the move in date for the client. Please feel free to ask questions below, I really don’t know what details you all might want to know about the construction.
