It seems we have new house guests here. They built a door in the support beam across my living room. I sure hope they are quite and the dogs don’t see them. They bark at the squirrel’s outside bad enough as it is!

This fun little project for my ladies (Wife and daughter) was made from 1/4” plywood bought at Walmart in the craft department. The moulding was made from craft sticks purchased at Hobby Lobby. The raised panel effect was laid out and carved in with a knife.

It is 6” tall and 3 3/4” at the threshold. Painted with acrylic paint.

My experience is – if the ladies are happy, I’m happy. Fun project.

That is clever. Should make an interesting topic of conversation for guests.

Oh, that’s good…I wish I would have seen this when my nieces were small! They would have gotten a big kick out of it.
