Good afternoon all! It's been a while since I posted anything here. Lots of "life stuff" to deal with. I have been working on a project to emulate a very rare compo door that's seen on some of the old putz houses, but-- I dunno if I have the right dimensions on it. I just "winged it" on the size. My door looks pretty "primitive" :lol: right now, but I'm gonna build a few if I can get the right size. Pete, Tom? You gentlemen are the rare putz house collectors here. Any input would be greatly appreciated! :)

Hello Will - You are very adventurous! So much detail in this door, I dont have a house with this door but see it on a few of the House's in Pete's catalog! What material did you use?

Thanks John. It was quite a tedious little project, but fun! I just used some off colored sculpey clay I had laying around. Baked it in the oven and painted it. ;) Yes, I hope to hear from one of our resident collector pros here what the correct size would be. I think mine is too tall. :)
