Dan,  thanks for taking time to show us the result.  
That’s a good piece of work.  Certainly adds some gravitas and dignity to a
doorway when you take time to add those extras.

Is that the final finish paintwork?  When I zoom in I see what look like nail
holes that are saying to me ‘Filler’

Ever since I read some old books on painting and decorating I start by assuming
that any paint finished work needs some fine filler, if only to grain fill, then
a rub out with the cork block and abrasive.

And the shots of the long tool rest and what looks like a fluted column on the
lathe…. ???  More good stuff?  Or did I miss a post about that.

moulding and other moulding that I need for this project myself. I built a new
and much needed closet in our foyer and had to make all of the time -
baseboards, crown molding, and the moulding around the door. It not perfect but
I think it came out pretty good. It’s the first thing you see when you come thru
the front door.
