Made this awhile ago and recently got some pics of the installed door.
I milled up the alder slab a year or so ago. The clients started off wanting an 8’ door but finally agreed upon a more standard size. The glass was custom made , double glazed tempered. The main live edge area was basically opened up and then glued back together, the rail and stiles were built up with doug fir and then skinned with 3/16 alder. All joints were deep mortise and tenon. The finish is 5-6 coats poly.
All and all I’m pretty happy with this door and the customer loves it so all is good.

I really like the look of that!

I didn’t follow all the photos, but the multi-layer construction looks clever.

Interesting look, and a nice twist on the sidelight doorway.

All that ends well, is well, and that’s a good thing.
