Doors constructed out of quarter-sawn, Douglas fir. For a friend in Ogunquit Maine. I just build the door and layout the lights, he built the jamb and hung them on his home. Doors are 9’ tall, 3’ wide each. He was going to paint the doors originally, but like the wood so much he clear coated them. The panels are mdo which he painted.

Those are very nice doors. That hose is going to be a beautiful home when he is through with it.
