While my daughter and I wandered through the Art Institute of Chicago recently, I was on the lookout for doors and I found lots of them. I offer them for you today, especially for Norm and Dan as well as any other woodworkers.

I’ll be on the road or in Philadelphia until Tuesday, taking a last load of our daughter’s things to her before we move, so I don’t know how much I’ll be online. But I always appreciate your thoughts and I’ll respond eventually.

    Happened to be still up on Wed. to see this! Great you saw this! I love drawers and doors in furniture, because it means I can store something in there!

  2. Sue says:

    Lovely rich coloured wood!

  3. Nice doors, and the move seems to be coming right up. 🙂

    • That it is. Making progress but not looking forward to it, the actual move, that is and of course we still have to find a rental house. Too early yet, though.

  4. I love the middle photo. That’s my favourite wood colour.

  5. JANE says:

    Remarkable craftsmanship and beauty in all the pieces that caught your eye. Best wishes on your move, Janet.

    • Thanks very much, JANE. There are other, more elaborate pieces that I’ll share at some point which are beautiful but not my style. But wooden furniture is amazing.

  6. Those are beautiful pieces. I like the round table and the sideboard a lot.

    • We have a beautiful sideboard in our house, which gives me great pleasure and is also very useful. I think of these the first and last are my favorites but there all lovely.

      • Decades ago when Big Baby Boy was little I rescued a BIG sideboard from Goodwill and refinished it. It was really too big for our house, but I liked it and it served me well for decades. I did finally give it away about 8 years ago. It would have fit in the new dinning room if I had kept it. I’m using an antique little side table in the dining room now.

    These are beautiful pieces of furniture, Janet. There’s nothing like moving to bring our awareness to the surface of furniture and stuff. Good luck with your move.

    Wow, the time and dedication it must have taken to create these! Unusual in a time of mass production…
    Safe travels, Janet!
