Our doors

Unfinished (but with clear varnish), six-panel, red oak doors, eight of them, are finally scheduled for delivery on Monday. Installation begins the next day.

Been a while since we had the idea. Expect it to be a winner. If not we can always paint them white. Pix to come.

UPDATE: They’re here. Heavy too. Pics when they’re hung.

MORE: They’re up and varnished to a reddish gleam as of Dec. 17. Now on to more crown molding.

Changing the chipped white hollow core (boring) interior doors to 6-panel unfinished red oak solid core slab doors.

Nine of them. With clear varnish painted or sprayed and gold knobs, three of them locking. Going to take some professional carpentry to finish this project.

UPDATE: Let there be light! An electrician retrofitted three hallway can lights with white LEDs and for the first time it looks bright in the passage to the living room. Doors probably be installed next week.
