This will be an indoor decoration, a faux 221B front door. I've taken cues from real Georgian/Victorian doors, the Grenada Sherlock Holmes series, and the new BBC Sherlock (in particular the numbers on the door).

It started with a door-sized slab of MDF:

Added a backplane of thin wood, and then molding mitred to fit:

I've scored it to look like it's made of separate boards.

Here it is drying after painting.

Still to do -- adding all the brass door furniture.

Very nice work.
What are you going to do with it once it's finished?


You should probably get this moved to the main prop forum.

Thanks! It's an original design, so I thought it belonged here. Maybe not?

I'm going to mount it on a blank wall near the entrance to my own little 221B sitting-room. Eventually I'll add a fanlight over the top.

Considering the high quality of your work, Philip, that's more than kind of you to say. :)
