As Lumberjocks we all have an interest wooden objects .

So how about a page designated to interesting doors?

Wonder how old this is, Dan?

An LJ named Suliman builds doors. I think he is from Syria.

Find an old door and put the Home Depot ‘lattice fence’ stuff in the top panel to make this:

I’m betting that first door isn’t all that old, I’ve seen others like it while wandering the Mediterranean; doors that looked right out of medieval times and earlier that were only 30-50 years old. It could be 1-200 years old or just a couple decades, the wall surrounding it seem to have been recently plastered. Course being Egyptian and not having a full pic it could also be part of a museum collection.

I thought it was Eyptian at first too. But upon looking closer, it looks African. But Dan’um didn’t say… Hence the question….

Not sure where door photo came from. The photo was not labeled. Found it. Grabbed it and here-tis.

This is a wonderful door in Gamla Stan (the old city) Stockholm which is a treasure trove of wonderful 300-400 year old doors.
