Hey Tom
Carving sounds like a good idea but even if I could get 12K for a door I’d have to carve it faster than 8 months, I’d probably cheat and call up Jordon,if I practiced for a 100 years I couldn’t match his talent. Making a dog house is better than being in one LOL.

Hey Jim ,are you ordering a door what size would like ,I’ll give you a special price $11,500 ? LOL

I have been noticing a lot of fancy front doors for sale in consignment furniture stores. They are not usually $12000 full custom doors, but more like $1000 to $2000 high end production doors. There are also a few built in stoves, dishwashers, and trash compactors at the consignment stores. It seems like people are selling off as much as they can before their house gets foreclosed on.

There are also a lot of foreclosed houses for sale without any appliances and a generic front door. :)

That is sure a wonderfully carved masterpiece!

I wouldn’t feel good using it for a Front door to my home though…

$6,500 is a pretty good price for it… I think… A pretty good BUY!
(although, I’d offer them $6,000… to help pay for picking it up)

Oh, I’d have remodel my home to make it fit too! LOL

well i know this, its a beautiful job, and i agree with what was previous said, something this beautiful would not be on a front door, sure a nice front door is one thing, but 12,000…not for a door, this piece ought to be placed in someones home…tough times folks….this is for sure…i have gotten to the point where i wonder if there will be a turn around…not being negative…but i look around me and see things…i hope this door lands into the right hands…

This should be in a woodworking museum, not for sale as a door. It’s a piece of art to me.

Somebody thought it was worth $12000 when they bought it. There is a limited market for such a pricey door. Only an architect for exclusive designs would be in a position to recommend it to a client. Just a matter of being in the right place at the right time. It could even sell for more than $12K.

Well – You can use it as a front door. Just build a room outside of your front door. It would be the front door room. And the door from the outside leading to the front door room would be the——I’m getting confused.

$12000 is definitely more than I would ever spend for a door…but there are most certainly alot of people out there that would not even flinch at spending it for something they like. Just have to find the right person and I am not ssure these people shop on craigslist.

If I paid that much for a door I would want the carvings to the inside, so I could admire it (and probably wonder “what was I thinking” ). My luck someone would pull a bird off or worse. But I never have to worry about that because I can’t see me paying $1,200 or even $650. for a door. I would have to build it myself for that price.
