This Curly Maple with Oyster sample panel is 18" x 18" Square x 1 3/8" thick. The customer is wanting a full door at 1 3/8" thick x 36" wide x 84" tall which will be for a door that opens up into their elevator room in their house.
 
She wanted to see a sample first before purchasing the full sized door.
 
 
 
The Diamond shaped center insert is out of Brick Oyster glued down into a routed out diamond shape. Then bending curly maple with mitered corners to fit around the inside edges that rest above the surface 1/2". That Curly maple sure is a lot harder to carve then Mahogany or Basswood.
