No, these are the "doors of perception." Do a Google search on that phrase to learn about connections to Aldous Huxley and Jim Morrison.

Doors look superb.
Just need to pry Track One west abouuuuut an inch to center rails in the door cutouts.

C&TS roundhouse uses short wooden bars shoved horizontally into  steel holders to secure their doors.

Paul, we use the same method, usually a 2x6 about 5 feet long, with a shim shoved in between one side of it and the door to really secure the door from movement
