Building a walnut door
« on: September 15, 2019, 04:54:28 PM »
I started a couple weeks ago as the wood came out of the kiln.This project will be several  more months in fabrication as some of the thicker pieces still showed internal moisture. The walnut is orchard (grafted) wood I brought in this last spring.
  The door will measure 132 inches tall 51 inches wide including an arched transom/jamb assembly.  With 3 inch thick frame, 4-5 inch thick burl raised panels - sheer weight is the main challenge. Lots of hollow form layups in the design and engineering on this build.The customer also has a massive kitchen island in the works.

 

 

 Note the tree graft that will be the center of the transom.

 

 

 After a great deal of template router work and lamination of opposing grains for stability the layup is ready for carving today prior to assembly. Careful attention is paid to have all of these big parts floating after fabrication. Rob

Yes, you always seem to be doing the coolest stuff.  Is there a drawing of the door to help me visualize?

Progress today on sculpting the transom panels and jointing the transom round to the head. Going from round to straight is very tricky........ :) The parts are cut so I can work through the weekend for a dry fit.

I was very disappointed that Costner shut down his casino. Is the old lady holdout still running the hardware store ?

I haven't been there in a year or so.  I trade mostly at the Twin Cities Hardware store between Deadwood and Lead on highway 385.
