These beautiful Folded Mahogany dividing screen doors between two rooms, were hand carved for my house
The doors were carved in the Rococo style of the 18th century.
C-scrolls,shells and others not apply to the door,there are carved from solid wood
The doors are elegant and detailed ornate works of art ,combined with Stained Glass and a Tongue Oil finish.
It took me for about 300 hours ,-just for the doors and about 90 h for the Carving frame , which I added later.

Boris,

Another outstanding piece of craftsmanship. Did you do the stained-glass work, too?

Wonderful work! I hope the rest of your house is decorated in this style, or you’ve got a lot of work ahead of you.
