Custom made arched screen doors

I spent the day this past Friday driving to Minneapolis to deliver and install some screen doors to go with the arched oak doors that I built last year.

Here are the Oak doors I built last year:

Pines, Stained Glass and Walnut

More pine trees...

This is a door I just finished building and installing.
The stained glass was made by the homeowner and she asked me if I could build it into the entry door for their cabin near Ely.
Here are some pictures:

Keeping busy with some smaller projects, getting through the extended winter and into the spring/summer building season. Fortunately we had the foundation in for this garage so we could get going on it without having to wait till the ground thaws. This is what Scott and Chris have been working on the past few weeks:

 Still piles of snow here and there and if you were to look off into the woods you would still see about 40% white on the ground.
