A million little Whack-A-Moles have emerged while I'm waiting to ship out . . . here's the latest thing . . . S.L.
Reason I have been so silent recently is a last minute job came up to produce these doors and the project has grown arms and legs on me. The client wants a pair of sliding barn doors for the interior of their rustic home. They have to be SOLID OAK and as such they weigh a TON. Spoke with client yesterday - now I have to take the doors apart and hit all the edges with a plane to give them an ancient rustic look, then stain & sand back to give it a "washed" look, then prime & paint all the bolts black . . .
. . . these doors are the mose MEDIEVAL DOORS in the ENTIRE HISTORY OF DOOR-DOM . . . I'm quite sure they will stop 9mm Luger maybe even .45 ACP . . . LABOR INTENSIVE and I'm waiting on visa paperwork to ship out of here ANY DAY NOW . . . well those damn doors ain't gonna finish themselves so I'm outta here ! ! !
VIKING DOORS PROJECT UPDATE: The doors are complete, but a last-minute consult with the client required me to completely disassemble to recreate a "rustic" look. Here you see the stain applied, and a comparison of how the stain looks when sanded down to create the "washed, stressed" look . . . next time I'll know what questions to ask the client up front . . .
