Sidelights, 9/15/06

We wanted to use sidelights to let more light in from the porch of the front apartment. I looked for matching sidelights to the nine light oak doors, but they were out of our price range. Then a listing for these sidelights appeared.

Fir with insulated leaded glass. I think that they were part of a job that was changed. $150 for both.

I stained the sidelights at the same time as the doors.

Because oak and fir have such different grain patterns, I knew that they would not match exactly, but they were pretty close.

Pat built the frames and installed the sidelights with the doors.
