These are not only attractive, they appear to be nice and sturdy, good and beefy. What’s the thickness David?

Like Marty, I’m wondering
Casings next, or are they already in place?

These look perfectly done David, except that I can hardly see the glue lines! Wonderful work as always. It can’t be too easy to figure out how to put those louvers into a curve and make them look so natural with the rest of the screen.

The heat transfer idea is practical. In our house the door frames have elongated indentations at the top on both sides to let warm air pass over the door tops into adjoining rooms. The indentations aren’t noticeable unless you look up at them from directly underneath.

My hippy side loves the hanging beads (not!).
My woodworking side thinks those doors are incredible.
Woodworking side wins!
Those are spectacular, David.
