African Mahogany Doors and Trim
When contractors need to hire a qualified finish carpentry crew, I often get referred to them. This time, cabinet maker Tom Zelko referred me to this homeowner to help her contractor hang the doors and take over the interior trim. African Mahogany is gorgeous wood to work with. But with all stain grade carpentry, the old saying measure twice-cut once is the rule!
A stack of doors. I think there were about 60 total in this house!
Lots of careful chiseling when it comes to door hardware.
And lots of careful routering! This is a jig for routering pocket door hardware.

Here’s a mock up to evaluate how we should trim something out.
The molding at the ceiling/wall is a detail I presented to the owner so she didn’t run crown molding. The house is contemporary and this hid the inconsistencies of the ceiling while keeping the look modern.
Lots of glue and clamping.
