Weekend Project: The Bike Door

Today I was able to get the door mounted and trimmed for the bike storage under our main stairs. This completes the carpentry phase of this project. I will need to stain and finish the wood the next time Jenn takes William out for a weekend.

Saturday, I got the glass mounted in the door. It took longer than I had hoped, because I cut the glass a bit long. If you've ever cut glass, you know that it's hard to cut less than a half inch off. You can either snip at it, or grind it off. I decided to go buy a grinder. I know I'll be needing it again.

Here is the door. I put it on the front porch to get the picture.


Here is the door in place. I like how this all turned out.


Here is the "before" shot taken two years ago. Wow!

Oh, thanks. I'm staining the door right now and hope to have some "completion" pics soon.

Fantastic work!
I've got a very simular set of stairs -- I like the shoe shelves you put in. I'd like to do something simular, put with a secret door. What are the boxes to the left/top of the shelves?

Thanks Mike. I'm not sure I understand what you mean by boxes?

Sorry, "boxes" wasn't a very good description. I meant the spaces to the immediate left of the shelves, and on top of the top shelf -- between the shelves and the stair risers.

Hmm, I think maybe some trim? Not sure. Here is a link to another angle that might help.

Also, here are a bunch more pictures of the stairs at various stages.

Hope this helps.
