    Did you caste the pearlcrete yourself and while I'm asking is it shaped to fit the revel
    Regards dave
    Yes, it was an experimental panel I made a while back. It fit inside the pattern except two corners, which I trimmed off.

    No worries. It genuinely pained me to watch an old home go into a container instead of being restored. Cest la vie...

    Re: Show us your Door Thread

    Here's my door. I've come at it from a different angle. I like the traditional look of a wood door. They are cheap and easy to make, relatively light compared to steel and don't conduct like a metal door does.
    Mine weighs 2.6 Kgs and is used one handed.
    175 x 430 x 19 mm Quilla timber
    insulating panel 12 mm bio millboard (no nasty fibres) attached to wood door with 4.5 mm 316 SS bolts.
    downside is that the thin insulating panel will start to cook the door if left in place for over 3 hrs at temps above 300 C. This is not a problem because I don't roast or bake for that long or at those temps.

    only about 2.5" . I think I'm going to use this on my real door, but Ill oil it.

    The best part is the hitch ring...it came from a granite post next to a house from the 18th century I helped dismantle about 14 years ago.

    Nice find. Because that ring has only one small contact point with the bolt, it won't get too hot.

    All the floor joists and sills were ruined by dry rot and powder post beetles...they were junk. Almost all of the rafters, roof boards and frame were numbered and sold to someone that re-built it somewhere else. So it was preserved in a way. I saw the home too...the contractor did an awesome job.

    I have been around when a few historic homes had to be demolished. Lots of EPA stuff with lead paint and asbestos sometimes prevents saving them...but we were able to salvage some material and hardware before they crunched it up with an excavator. The ring came from a site like that...and I'm glad I have it instead of it being lost forever.
