Here is a set of monumental doors I just picked up for a song!

I mean these puppies are huge! I really want to meet the burly guys who installed them hehe.

They measure over 8 1/2 feet tall over 3 feet wide and the rails and stiles are 5 1/4 wide 3 1/2 inches
thick. Solid oak for the rails and stiles and the center field is curley birdseye Walnut. Seems pretty
obvious its veneer but wow. Nice!

I couldn’t get them out of the truck at first. Starts to make one realize how old and out of shape I’m getting

Not sure what I’m going to do with them yet…
I’m sure I can come up with something eh???
Oh yeah.

Before I saw exactly what I was getting my plan was to cut them up and use them
for Bench tops or table tops for the shop… These would surely make a crazy Bench eh?!

That middle panel is walnut burl, and it looks like alot of it. They will be nice when cleaned up.
