Guy wanted this look, but with only using materials on the job, and without spending extra money. I'm not sure about it, but he's pretty happy.

What don't you like about it?
I think it looks a little 'heavy', but other than that it looks great.
Gotta do what ya gotta do.:thumbsup:

Does look nice. I also agree with the "heavy" look. A horizontal 1/2" band running 1/4" proud between the head casing & transom & another one above the transom head casing would've made a big difference.

I have to disagree, I don't like it. I think it looks like what it is/was: an afterthought, put together with left over materials.

I'm not talking about your craftsmanship and I mean no offense. I just don't like it.

I prefer Poplar for paint grade builds. I know, it wasn't available at site. Just saying.

Neat. I like what you did with limited material. I'd like to see what it looks like painted.

I don't see many paint grade door jambs and casing done in poplar. Usually FJP pine.

Too much thickness between the bottom of the window and the top of the door, but still looks decent.
