Further Adventures in Entry Doors

Detail of the shop-made leaded glass speakeasy window.  The window is set into a small frame, which is in turn set into a recess in the door.  The panel for the hatch (shown behind the glass) was made from the pieces left over from cutting the square hole in the door (thus keeping the pattern and color of the grain continuous.)

Above, one of the wedged through-tenons at the end of a cross-rail.  The rails run through square channels in each of the central stiles. and help distribute some of the door's weight to the outside of the door frame.

Chamfer detail between two stiles.  All surfaces were planed by hand before finishing.
Arch detail.  The door frame was built up of three "stacks" of 2"-thick material, then joined, and finished.
