    church door

    Many of you remember Tod, who had to take a hiatus from FW for personal reasons, is building a door for my church.
    I am so impressed with the workmanship going into this project I'm nearly overwhelmed. I have always realized my personal wood working skills were limited. But until seeing what he is putting into this project I never understood just how limited.
    What he is building is/will be truly a door for the ages.
    The picture below was taken by Tod with his cell phone. Better pics later as work progresses. The circle will have a stained glass inset into it.
    The entire door is made with mahogany. It is finished with a high end two-part epoxy used for yachts and will be over finished with another high end boat varnish.
    Our congregation is small but we have already agreed, if we ever move to another facility the door comes with us.

    Looking good. I take it by looking at the ends, the sides are laminated core (for stability)? I'm taking notes, a door is on my want to do list.

    Nice design, I like the circle window. That really gives it a unique touch.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible
