Wow! After Curt learns Black Smithing at the John C. Campbell Folk School I'm having him make hardware for our door like this!!!


Genuine Edwardian Egyptian Queen or Greek Goddess Brass Door Knocker. I can't quite decide who she is, all I know is that she seems to give an aura of peace and calm, in addition to which she has a great patina only achieved with age. Complete with original brass striking plate and new fixing studs. Slim in width and ideal for glazed doors with a narrow centre stile.


Inspiration. Only cause I don't think it would work on a craftsman or ranch style home or it could and I will call my house "The Shire". No compliants there.


The top and bottom Ebony trim pieces are in place and just need to be sanded flush on the parquetry box, then I'll be adding a little more gold mother of pearl around the top perimeter. The Ebony will be a little bit smaller once I've cleaned it up which I think will be a good look, it won't be quite so strong of a contrast when it's smaller. Clearly I decided to use hinges on this box. I think there will also be a couple interior trays of some kind.


small details are always overlooked in homes. This hinge gives the door a whimsical feel while still fitting into the "mood" of the home.
