The door of silence is finished.
Sadly the door and the frame are so heavy that I had to use a power tool to be able to get the assembly out of the barn.
Due to the roofing project of our house the carpenter has left his tractor mounted forklift for us to use, so I could move the door fairly easy.
This is actually the first woodworking project I have ever made that was so heavy and bulky and couldn't be made light enough by taking it apart that I had to use a tractor to move it.
The lower part of the frame is intended to be buried in the ground, hence the plates to protect it from tipping over.
Anja the artist called me the other day and said that another door had been vandalised, so she had found a new place for this door at an exhibition if it was OK with me.
So I have to make some sort of stand for the door so it does not need to be buried in the ground.
Anyway it has been a fun project.
An unusual power tool for woodworking.
The door is being placed up against the wall of the barn for the final finishing touches.
The finished door of silence.
