Tudor style doors with Gothic head
June 27, 2010
It took me three days to fit the door. The first day was just for the door frame – very important to get that right. The second day was used to hang the doors. I didn’t have to plane anything off the doors, but I did have to take the skylight home and plane something from the bottom to straighten it, because the tension in the shape pulled the sides upwards. On the third day, I put the glass in and finished off.
As you can see the frame only connect with the walls on the down side of the crooked slate porch. Later I filled the gaps with Oak flush with the frame.
