Cherry and Beveled Glass Entry

Just recently photographed, this Custom Entry was built in 1990.  We have always loved this project, and after so many years were happy to find it has aged beautifully.

Design features:  All the glass lines are continuous both vertically and horizontally.  The sidelights and transom are  leaded beveled glass.  Instead of lead, the doors use wood mullions, to add to the interest.  Each intersection in the wood mullions incorporates a mini- mortise and tenon joint.  Notice the mullions in the corners on a 45 degree angle, that was fun!  The finish is four coats of marine varnish over non-stained cherry.  This is what we mean when we say “We bring the Quality of Furniture to the Scale of Architecture”.
