A customer has requested we build a custom entrance door for their new home. The complete unit will consist of 2-15″ sidelites and a 36″ door. The overall dimensions are 72″ in width & 90″ in height with a 6″ arched radius spanning the entire length. We will use Spanish cedar for all the wood components. Glass will be used in the sidelights above a small panel. We will etch fleur dis leis into the glass as requested.
The following pictures depict various stages of the jamb during construction.
The jamb was 6- 9/16″ wide. We cut components to match the radius of the top jamb and assembled using glue & dowels.
We then ripped the corresponding sides to match the width of the top jamb. We made our threshold 7 1/4″ in width …the extra width will accommadate the brick mold casing that will be applied after the jamb is assembled.
The next picture is the completed jamb with sidelights installed.
