This project was inspired by the bathroom door in the gamble house. It’s made of mahogany over plywood core. Some of the trim is alder and some is mahogany. And it’s my first attempt at making leaded glass.

My lovely wife helped me make the wenge pegs. The wenge dust is nasty stuff.

I wrote a blog if you would like more details.

Great job, Love G&G….. Looking at this beauty everyday would be great. We live really close to the Gamble house and go there quite often.

That is a great looking G&G door and frame….I also checked out the blog…you did an awesome job with all the joinery and stained glass and a project is always doubly enjoyable when it’s a joint effort… well done.

Really, really nice. You see things on this site that just make you say “wow” and this was one of those for me.

Beautiful door. I like G&G projects with stain glass. My daughter also help me to make stain glass projects. Are your glass design or original Gamble Hous design?

My wife used to do projects with me all the time then she started her own hobbies. She helped quite a bit on this project and it was nice to have her in the shop with me. She likes to sand and I’m happy to let her.

Francois – I put some stained glass information in the blog that you requested

Edward – I made the pattern to roughly imitate the bathroom door on the second story of the gamble house. Here is a link to a picture of the door. I like theirs better than mine.

I would say your door is on point if not more G&G than the original. I like it. The picture with the light behind the door is something I would never get tired of. Well done! Its cool your wife helped too.

Thanks for the link. Gamble House door have the more light colours . But your stain glass is more right for the your finishing colour of the mahagony . I like it.

I am pretty critical of my work. What I like about the gamble house door glass is the top section of glass is more round shaped than mine.
