Nice work! What is the deal with the lower doors? Haven't seen that before.

Nice herringbone on the doors, that's a great idea!

Very nice! I love the doors. Very unique.

Excellent Job! I, too, like that herringbone thing you got going on the doors. That wouldn't be some T & G flooring laminated to ply or something for the panels, would it?
When I did the floor for the home office, I had a crapload of Brazilian Cherry 3/8" think flooring left and used some of it for a sort of cabinet top for the built-in bookcases and workcenter. Glued it to some ply and added cherry edging.

No, it`s actually pine planed down to 3/8" with a shiplap joint on both edges and one end then glued together. I made the panel oversized then cut it to fit the rabbet on the back of the door then glued it in. It took me about 3 weeks to make but I enjoyed every second of it. I learned a great deal on the project, alot of trial and error involved which added to the fun, I love a challenge. Thanks for the nice comments everyone.

Nice work! Naughty pine has always been a favorite of mine. I always like it when someone lets pine be pine and does not try to stain it to try to make it look like something it aint.
Thanks for sharing your project.

So, if you let pine be pine, does it necessarily get naughty on you? Love your vulture pic, Doug. Reminds me of a cartoon I saw once. Two vultures sitting on a ledge and one says, "Patience my a$$, I'm gonna kill something."

>So, if you let pine be pine, does it necessarily get naughty
Sorry Jerry, I just made it back to this thread and realized that I missed this...
Yes, pine can be very naughty when you let it - if you cut out all the knots it behaves very well, but, then, it would knot be naughty wood it? :7 There is a bar in T or C that is called the "Pine Knot", but we always called it the "Naughty Pine"...

That was EXACTLY what I was looking for...could not find anything with 2 vultures, but the one looks just like the ones I remember seeing with that caption. I've also seen the same two vultures looking down on a skeleton and a road sign saying so many miles to Phoenix or something like that, and that caption says something like "Yeah, but it's a DRY heat..." I could not find that one at all.
I think I saw both of those on T Shirts and/or baseball caps in either Tucson or Phoenix one time.
Since you lived in El Peso for a while, I'm sure you know about the dry heat...kinda like dry humor...you can take a lot more of it for a lot longer than the regular kind. :+

Maybe it's just been old age, but seem lately when I head out there is isn't nearly as dry as it used to be. My folks, infact, switched from a Master Cool Evap cooler to refrigerated AC.

Yeah, we almost replaced the Master Cool with a real A/C, but I just couldn't justify the cost. The swamp cooler works well most of the time, except during monsoon season when it gets really humid.
It probably depends on when you visit, but we are pretty arid most of the time. Right now (9 PM MST) the Weather channel says we are 84 degrees and 9 percent humidity...yep that single digit humidity is correct! Of course, it got over 100 today...but, it's a dry heat! ;)
