I’m hoping you all had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones. It’s been a long productive year for me and am finally with my daughters in sunny Adelaide for the holidays.
This is my last project for 2012. My friends Jun and Rosie who commissioned this piece sent some of these photos and are having a wonderful holiday season with their new door. This is the third door I’ve posted on Lumberjocks. This particular one was part of my recent exhibit and has a more intricate sculpted door handle. I am attaching the link on the first door I posted for construction details. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/28012 I provided two locks for this door instead of one at the center so as not to disturb the flow of the handles at the center.
top, mid, bottom rails: dungon (iron wood)
panels: molave, yakal, ipil, saplungan & tindalo.
door jamb: yakal
All woods used are reclaimed from old houses as with all my other projects.
May the coming New Year bring you and your families, love, happiness, health and good fortune!
