This was a Entry door i made for Local Builder. As always I like challenging projects that make you think. The door
was in a picture home owners took in France. That’s all I had to go with, no drawing, details just the actual size they wanted. Door size was 48” wide x 109” tall x 2 1/4” thick. I used Cedrela odorata (Spanish-cedar) . I used
through mortise and tenon joints with 3/4” dowels. All trim was made on williams-hussey moulder. All other parts layed out by hand. A few picks we too along the way.

Krunngk! {sound of my lower jaw hitting my keyboard} Wow – what a beautiful piece of woodwork. I can only admire and be inspired. My limited shop and skills are unlikely ever to produce something so magnificent. But I’m glad you did, and that you shared it with us.

any chance that you could show some of the W/H knife profiles? I believe that the W/H moulder is really overlooked for producing curved mouldings. Mine has ran thousands of ft of both straight and curved product. As I see in the background you have your choice of other moulders to use. Thank You
