Crack filling and laying up the beefy raised panels.

 Contemplating how to work through this ugly pile of slabs for the door frame and the customers kitchen island top.

Tony and Jackson carved on the door panels this morning. This is going to take several days.

 I started to develop the jamb legs from two of the ugly slabs. Standard "resaw and flip" reversing the grain for stability- this tames an angry tree. Once inside the slabs I was surprised at the character of the wood.

Thanks for the kind words ! Today I started going through all of the scrap, defect cutting and prepping for finger jointing. These end jointed staves will be used for stop material and other frame parts.I hate to waste wood......

I did some calcs before I started and the weight was scary heavy. Figure 3 inches X 48 X 108 of solid dry walnut worst case say 300 + pounds. I did an original design with hollow coring and I'm shaving even more weight as I build. I will weigh the separate parts for a close estimate before assembly.
   To answer your question- I don't know yet.

The grain on that last piece in post 26 is just amazing! Is it a finish or water to see how it would look?

This is an amazing build and I too want to thank you for bringing us along!

The grain pic in #26 is BLO wiped on one of the "veneers" I'm developing for the frame .We pulled off of this door project for a few weeks to mill material for another job. I store the "veneers ' under cantilevered weights to keep them flat during our weather fluctuations this time of year. Juggling jobs right now !
