Carpentry - 1

I seem to have gotten a bit of the carpentry bug.

The room with the Dragon Door needed a table and as I did have some spare time I decided to build one.

I'm a big fan of really long dining tables because somehow they feel grander. I decided to build one as long as the room would allow.

Dimensions : 20 feet 10 inches (about 6.35 meters) x 3 feet 3 inches (about 1 meter)
Height (table top) : 29.5 inches
Seating capacity : 22

For the table top I decided to reclaim wood left over from the old doors and windows that were taken down during the renovation. I mixed and matched 7 kinds of wood (Tuna, Sal, Pine, Cheed, Sagwan, Sheesham & Deodar), glued and nailed them to a wooden skeleton structure (again made from reclaimed wood).

For the legs I decided to make 6 circular rings to match the door of the room. The rings were made with Plyboard & MDF and later panelled with small pieces of deodar wood.

After that I started work on the chairs. I wanted something rustic so ordered a hun…

Hobbiton Style Circular Door

Over the last year I have been working on the renovation/remodeling of my hotel in Nainital. Now we had a 1600 sq ft. area that was to be converted into a small restaurant for the hotel guests. Being a huge fan of LOTR I decided I wanted the entrance to the restaurant to look like a the door to Bilbo's house obviously with our own twist.

Here are some pics of the build.

The door is a two panel design completely circular and 7 feet tall. Its 1.4" thick and each wood panel weight in just over 50 kgs. Wood: Sagwan.

The hinges were made from 0.25" thick mild steel and cut using hacksaws and files

We still have some work left for the interiors and the tables and chairs and i post t
