Gnome Door. 1” thick oak scrap, actually an old stair tread, cedar lapped roof. It’s about 9” tall overall. The stoop is made of a scrap of corian. I found a little knurled nut that looked like a doorknob and bent the knocker from some brass brads. When I first put it up, I placed a little For Rent sign out front. A couple weeks later I built the mini Adirondack chair and a trash can. The chair came out really nice. I used some leftover oak strips from a shelf edging project. Held together with super glue and a thick coat of white enamel.

This is so cute! I would love to walk around the neighborhood and see this peeking out under a tree. I do expect to a gnome walking out with a cold beer, ready to relax in his porch chair!

Next project for Mr G is going to be a little cedar strip canoe hanging on the tree, but that’s an over winter project.

This is hilarious! I may do something like this when I get some free time. Like you, Matt (BTW, welcome), it’ll be in the winter. Not that it’s bad here in Southern California, that’s just when I’ll probably get to it.

Kookaburra, gnomes only drink ale.

Whimsical, carefree, and enchanting. It brings the mystery of being a child to mind… Thanks for posting this.

I made one of these a couple of years ago, and the grandkids love it. They’re waiting to see the Gnomes come out to see what they look like. My little next door neighbor girl takes all the kids in the neighborhood through for a tour to see the Gnome door. Hmmmmmmmmmm! I think she’s charging a fee. If she is, I want a cut. lol
Yours is much nicer Cueball. Nice touch with the little furnishings.

Gnome doors have been on my to do list for several years. I have the plans and everything, but haven’t taken the leap of faith to just go for it. Our yard art Gnomes really need access to the trees. Thanks for sharing

Welcome to the Gnome door club. I know Ms. Debbie will be glad to see another kindred spirit in the midst. I like how you’ve added the chair and can. I chose for mine; a gnome, a hanging door sign, a matching window, and birdnest. I’ve made over 20 doors for friends and relatives so far it’s a great gift.
