I’ve done a few of these. They usually pique some interest. Do you see what I did here? :)

That’s a nice looking pocket door setup. Unique.

It’s a square door in an arched doorway. I like it.

Thanks Bob and Bondo,

It didn’t take you long to recognize the trick there. Just something you don’t see every day.

Here is one I did last spring with a Tudor Arch in plaster this time:

That looks so much nicer than the usual pocket door!

Looks good, just wondering if you have any pics with the door closed? Is that a store bought door, or did you make it as well?.

Thanks ALL,

Here is a shot of the first door and it is a standard arched top door, nothing custom except the opening :

Thanks basswood, I was wondering how the arch of the panel lined up with the arch of the casing. Did pretty good,
The width of the stiles seems a little off, looks like a little bit off the leading edge would have taken care of that.
Like all your work. You do good stuff.

@Kevin,

The door received hardware and a stop molding on the right after I took that photo. The stop evened out the reveal, but your method would work too.

Thanks, Brian

I think that it adds a very nice touch to a home and the like of a swinging door also saves some room. Nice work.

Really nice work. I expect to see a few of those in upcoming project posts from other lumberjocks working on their own houses… :)

Nice trick. Now the sequel would be to make the rest of the doors match. Job security!!

Charles, Nicholas, Greg, and Gary, Thanks for the kind words.

I like projects that are a little out of the ordinary.

Here are a couple of shots of another one I did with curved shoulders on the door:
