This is my first posting so bear with me. This front entry door was my first try at veneer work and boy was I a nervous wreck! The wood veneer panels are bookmatched burl maple, if you notice it is matched from center of door in all directions on both sides of the door. The frame a trim on the slab is 1/4 inch birch. Glass panels(not shown installed yet) are sheets of glass with air bubbles blown in it for a cool look. The door unit included two side lights as well. The finished door unit with side lights measured 5 feet wide and 8 feet tall. The slab is a solidcore door slab.(HEAVY)! The project that this door was installed on was a 2 year project for me, as I did the entire trim package for the customer. The owner purchased the 32nd through 35 floor of a historic building in downtown Kansas City and turned it into his residence. It was quite the project for me!

Outstanding. Which is where i would be if I came up to this door. Out standing admiring it.

3 years ago when i was looking for doors to replace the one in my house that was destroyed in a farming accident I found that the industry no longer call them doors. Now they are called “Entrance systems” what a load of crap to try and make people feel good about paying some over priced CEO more money. Rant mode off.

Cory, Awesome door! I’m sure that makes one impressive entrance way. Would love to see more pictures of it installed. Thanks for sharing and look forward to seeing more of your work.

Thanks for the comments so far. Ottoh, the trim portion of the project took me about 8 months to complete all floors. I also did other work on that project taking me to the two year time frame. I will post some more pics of that project soon.
