196 viewsPrevious owners ran door knob into the plaster behind small bedroom door.
I 'repaired' the wall with a special locked door made out of plywood with a
steel tubing frame incorporating the old 'bank vault' locking pin system.

136 viewsAlthough the door was never 'finished', it was never questioned and I
stored my RealDoll, 'Heather', inside for years. Behind the trim at the
bottom of the wall, there is a knot in the plywood.

127 viewsI used a holesaw to remove the knot from another piece of plywood
and transferred it to here. You can see that I never finished gluing.
Now, fifteen years later, I want to finish the whole door to blend in.

good idea of adding a small lever to open the door from the inside.

98 viewsTop shaft and bearing hinge. Should probably have used something
stronger than a 2x4 as an insert for the bearing, but it works.

on a chair most of the time, which caused her hips to tear open.
