Describe the project, what makes it unusual, and/or any outstanding characteristics.
This was a challenging project to complete. We made new White oak doors to replace the original ones installed in the '50s when the church was built. The old doors had several bad coats of paint and outdated hardware and weatherstripping that we upgraded. A local company scanned the existing carved molding surrounding the stained glass and gave us a digital file that we used to cut out the parts with a cnc router. The parts needed some sanding to clean up and refine the profiles but turned out very well. This method kept the costs under control compared with having them hand carved. The existing stained glass was reused in the new doors. We used a waterbased exterior finish that we custom tinted to match the interior millwork of the church. We built a total of 3 pairs of doors like this for the church.
