Well... here you have the entrance of a wine cellar, it is excavated on the ground and the door was made with the reclaimed boards of a threshing board, many many years ago...
This is the door that is going to be substituted by the one I'm making.

IMHO I wouldn't change it, just reinforce it and leave like that for another 50 years or more, but the owner a brother of my father in law wants it changed so
We are going to keep the lock, the nails and of course THE KEY and put them on the new one.
The lock had some inhabitants that flew away when we removed it.

I will post the door project on the flatwork forum but I thought that this introduction should go here. I let in the hands of the mods to move it where they think it belongs to.
