Front Door


I'm very anxious to finish some of the basic elements of the house including the windows and door.  I don't know what I'm going to do about the glass for the windows, but I started making the door.  I used balsa because it's soft enough to make indents to simulate wooden planks.  It's also soft enough to "nail" the pin heads.  Below is my inspiration photo:

 I also like this mailbox and want to replicate it too.

The door is in the first stage of drying (and SO rough), but I like posting progress pictures.  The finished door is going to be red and aged.  The back looks the same as the front.
