This is a doorbell made from QSWO scraps that I had in the shop. It has a bit of Mission styling. It measures, 11.5” w x 6.5” h x 4” d. Construction is stub tenons. The finish is General Finishes Candllelite gel stain and top coated with General Arm-R-Seal satin poly. The last picture is the ugly doorbell that was there originally.

Great idea and nice execution. I might have to make one of those to cover up the cheesy white plastic doorbell we have in our entryway.

Very well done.
This gives me a great idea to replace my cheesy almond colored one.

Great Design
