This door was built of sugar pine. One of the design parameters was for a privacy screen to cover glass windows at top of door.(This door is between bedroom and livingroom). I came up with this pivoting carved sunburst top panel which covers middle panel when in down position. Panel is held in up position by edge mounted rare earth magnets. I designed and did carvings on both sides of the doors. Patron shared with me the nifty blocks for clamping the laminated arched top. This was a helpful and easy way to do the lamination of the 1/8th inch veneers for the arched top. I think this is the most complex set of doors I have built to date.
