Paint Grade Don't make me cry.
Is that spanish cedar?
Interior or exterior?
What type of latching is used?
How did you get anyone to bevel the inside corners of the corner spandrels?
How did you and they connect?
Oh, yeah, nice work.
Paint Grade...I know!! A shame.in that Brownstone..(1880's I think) It really did need to be painted...to match the place and decor. I almost did it out of Mahogany on my on bill just to see if I could accomplish it as a stain grade project.and to give them an option of stain! It wouldn't have worked though.
I overnighted 1/8th inch ply templates to a brooklyn glass shop. that was my priority for scheduling. The inside corners?! On one you could see where it was all a free hand show..regardless..the glasswork was stunning in person..a wall of prisms!
I inset roller catches.Top and bottom of the one door. Full mortise lockset. Beautifull hardware! Flawless action! Almost looked gilded! Very ornate latches.
Interior. Definitely! Brooklyn. The Heights. But still Brooklyn.
Very nice work. Have you made a lot of doors? I like the casing is that custom? How long did the install take? Any surprises?
No. Not a lot of doors. I built and rebuilt them in my head for 3 weeks before i committed to them. The opening was disected...for plumb...for level...for bellies and bows..the floor the same...pulled diagonals, to check how square the opening was....compensated for everything..
The main frame was uncrated and the mortise and tenons (6) were field installed on the first day. I couldn't not grin at how well it went in....but it came from good measurements!
Yes! Very custom casing! The profile was so deep i couldn't use my moulder. Had shaper knives cut for it. 3 piecer. 2 profiled cutters..a rub collar to reference the stock. And a spacer. Remember...the 1/2 inch step in the door jamb....had to be compensated for. One side of the casing had a 1/2 inch wider flat than the other. By using shaper knives,break aparts, and spacers, the same profiles could be used for the differing widths of casings. A scary vertical sled was used for the curved casing. Very scary! The 5 feather boards i used as insurance made it tolerable!......that little bead? is 3/8 round rod i fabbed up with a router. It was applied the the casing.
thanks for the kudos...it was a fun one.
Can I ask what you got for that job?
So what I really want to know is, how much?
