My apartment door is plain and boring, and given its number, I couldn’t not make this joke. I used Proofgrade thick draftboard, PG cherry and walnut veneers, ceramic magnets, and self-adhesive felt. The whole piece is sized so that the peephole is the correct proportion for the center-punch in Andale Mono’s zero. A kerf of 0.007" worked perfectly; the veneer almost snapped together.
Please forgive the potato-quality photos, the lighting in the hallway is pretty terrible.
I didn’t get the large veneer perfectly aligned with the underlying draftboard. In retrospect, I should have made an alignment (weeding?) jig by cutting a larger rectangle around the design in both the board and the cherry veneer. Then I could have clamped and adjusted the alignment before committing to the adhesive.
The perfect hideout. I am inspired. What is supposed to be our front door in inconvenient and we never go that way but Fed-X keeps leaving packages there that can sit in the rain for days before anyone notices. I need a sign to hang on the door saying “This is not a door please see other side”
Apparently that has been done but they still get it wrong. Fortunately we are getting notice on the Fed-X stuff and the postman knows enough to get it right but there is still the odd delivery that is none of those hence the need of a sign.
