Hi John,

Nice door knobs, did you make them your selve?

G'day Maarten, I had some thick brass pins that had a head that is approx 2.5mm across and these are what I used, see pics below,

I had blackened them for another job I was doing,

So I used some fine sandpaper and took the blackening off,

Hi John,

Thx for sharing, I'd like the result. Keep it in mind for my doors. I now created door handles from copper wire. I hope to update my log this weekend.

I took some closer looks at the photos and I want to ask you something, which I marked in blue on your photo of one of your last posts

WE can see at the sides of the doors to the cabin one vertical carving bands (arrows), which are looking a little bit lost for me.
Cound it be, that they should be a little bit closer to the doors, so that the curved carvings over the doors have a connection, like a flower frame around the doors?
The possible locations are marked with the blue dashed / dotted line....... just a thought

You have a good macro-function on your camera.......or very big fingers ;-)
Many Thanks for sharing this detail....

Thank you Uwe, it is not an expensive camera, it is a Fuji Fine Pix, it works really great, thanks again for looking in,

best regards John
