Our First Doors
Our craftsman friend who put the word "timberframe" in our vocabulary is doing a lot of the architectural trim work for our house. These are the first doors that he made for us... we love them! The panels are made of quartersawn white oak that I logged and cut on my sawmill. The frames are cherry (not from our farm). The door in the foreground has a lot of quartersawn "ray fleck," whereas the door in the background looks more rift sawn. Each of the four 12 inch wide panels in the doors is made of book matched 6" boards. These doors will just exactly fit inside arched braces that frame the entrances to two of our children's rooms.
