Lol, I'm glad you asked.
My custom mahogany door came in a few weeks back. This thing is beastly, 1 3/4" solid door
I opted to upgrade the construction with custom moulding, thicker panels, and lvl construction
LVL CORE TECHNOLOGY
In addition to our standard stave wood core Lemieux offers all of our products with an optional Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) core. The strength and durability has been proven for years in other construction products such as beams, trusses and joists. We know a door built with LVL construction will be stronger and will not warp, twist or cup. We highly recommend LVL construction on any exterior product and oversized doors greater than 36".
Lemieux make a variety of panels available to make the right door design for you. We recommend our MDF panels either in primed or in one of our stain grade species. The MDF panel will not shrink, expand, split or crack. Our MDF panels are available in a 3/4" and 1-1/8” single hip panel along with a 1/2" and 3/4” flat panel. We also have a solid wood 3/4” single or double hip panel available and a 1-1/8” engineered solid single or double hip panel.
Now the tough part is picking a color and a painter. I'm a DIY type guy, but I'm not messing around with a door like this.
As for some other projects:
The wife was getting tired of a light bulb in our bedroom, so we picked up a chandelier...I really couldn't turn her down again after buying the HTPC
American Brass and Crystal FM9521
My neighbors are finishing their basement, so this weekend I'm going to do their electrical
Lastly, I'm planning to build a patio in my yard. I'm waiting for approval from the association and town. We'll see if they approve
