Lock, stock and barrel

The door to the Harry Potter suite is officially ready to install.  I’ve cut it to size, installed the lock, added the hinges and attached an old safe manufacturer’s brass plate (as you do).  

Fortunately I had a bit of a brain wave before I cut it to its final size (see the start of the journey here).   Over a cuppa it occurred to me, why not make the opening wider instead of the door narrower?  I checked it out and, sure enough, by changing the door frame I only needed to trim 25mm off the door’s width - sheer genius.  (Pretty darn obvious really.) 

The rest of the weekend was spent putting together a kids’ talk for church about wisdom - kind of ironic really.
