A pair of arched top mahogany doors with a custom hand made
wrought iron grill. The doors will be 8'-4" tall, 38" wide, and 2 3/4" thick.

The project includes removing the existing entry and installing a new arched top mahogany jamb to
match the doors.

The first set of photos show the existing entry.

The arched jamb also needs an arched door stop. After cutting the jamb top with a band saw, I use the inside cut-off as a
form for the arched door stop. The curved stops are laminated together with 5 - 1/8" thick mahogany strips glued together
with West brand epoxy. You can see the full size door layout drawing in the photo below.

The double doors are trimmed and pre-hung in the jamb before the raised panels, molding and wrought iron is installed.
The next step is finish sanding, staining and finishing. I stitched together a couple of photos I took while the doors were
on my bench.
