Just finished up the new front door for my house. It’s an Arts and Crafts style, to go with the bungalow style house that I’m building. It’s made of White Ash. The rails and stiles where made from 8/4, planed down to 1 3/4” and the floating panels are 1/2” thick. It has a walnut and cherry mix stain. So far it has about 8 coats of pure tung oil. Glass is textured glass I got at a stained glass store.

Beautiful Door! I think the darker, contrasting trim really makes it stand out!

That looks great. This is the kind of thing that is so rare in new construction. Design and execution both look excellent.

Tim;

Outstanding job.

It sure looks great. I bet you got a lot of “brownie points” for that project!

Thanks everyone for the kind compliments. I was glad to get it finished.

Lee, I don’t know about “brownie points”, but I got a plate full of brownies!
