We finished and installed this door last week. It is a replica of the original door when the house was built. Everybody that worked on this door did an amazing job. Thanks John for the opportunity!

we used a custom color TE stain (that we pigmented) , 4 coats of nitro-vinyl sealer, and 4 coats of Pro-Line Poly-urethane based clear lacquer. We added sheen flatening agent to reduce it to 25 degrees.

That is very good work, I love seeing old homes put back to original even if its just the main door. Congrats

Wow, that will be one of my favorite projects to attempt. I think I will start with interior doors first though. Nothing like having solid wood doors throughout the home.
Great job on this door.

Nice door, looks WAY better than the one it replaced. Bet it is heavy…well done.

They say a nice front door makes a good first impression. This door will make many good impressions…it looks great! Thanks for sharing.
