New Front door made of Alder, with frost tempered glass and wrought iron nail heads (Clovis)
Another dado and floating tenon special.
Also wrapped the door case in custom Alder trim.
The door wrap came out pretty good considering the goal was to conceal the old brown paint.
Alder might be new favorite wood. Known as poor man’s cherry, it takes a hand plane and other tools very well, and stained well.
Doors are a good time.
