I made this out of 8/4 Oak. It was fun.

Not yet. It was during this project that I realised how bad it was. It has been over 100 in NC the last two weeks or so I have not had motivation to go out in to the shop and play with it yet.

Great looking door, bet that thing was a bear to handle, it appears quite hefty… I understand – I have not been in the shop lately for the same reason, it is quite hot.

Thanks for sharing

nice looking door. If you’re willing to put another post out there, I’d be interested to see details of the window.

The window is just temp. I want to get stained glass done for it but I ran out of funds. I made the frame for the window out of scrap brad nailed one side to the door, sealed it with clear silicone then put in one solid peace of glass. To make it look good I made another window frame and just siliconed it to the glass. Just a temp solution until I can part with the $400 to have the stained glass panel made.

Nice door, are the wood panels solid wood also?
