Today I was thinking that since I am on a wood graining kick that I might as well work on my other “How To Video” and ended up on my entry door video segments that I recently finished. I have two lines of “How To’s” videos in progress and since I just recently refinished a set of mahogany entry doors I thought I may as well put a preview out there to let people know that I am very knowledgable in things other than decorative art, after all, I have had a brush in my hand since time began for me anyway.
I got this call from a builder friend of mine David Giles of Purple Sage Construction who had a client that needed something done with their entry doors. It turned out that the person who took on this job prior to me did not have the right qualifications to take on such a feat and did the best they could with them without having to strip them. In other words they were a mess by the time I got to them. They were at first wanting to have them woodgrained in order to “cover-up” what was there and I simply told them for less cost they could bring them back to the original beauty of the natural mohagany. To me it just doesnt make sense to do a mohagany wood grain over a mohagany door unless there is some kind of good reason. So I stripped the doors back to the original surface and cleaned them up and this is where this blog begins…..
