That was some amazing man hours, talk about a major undertaking is to say the least. No way to top that talent, fantastic!

That is truly magnificent, Yamato!! Given the way it pokes through the ceiling I assume this isn't its final location. Just transporting that to the castle will be a task unto itself.

Great job on this!

Yamato - we are running out of words to compliment you and your magnificent staff
on the awesome craftsmanship they have !!!
I know this is a strictly commercial job for you, but, for us hobbyists, it is still very much appreciated.
I was in SZ China a few years ago and visited a Monk's Temple up on a mountain.
the two main doors were 20 feet tall, 10-12 inches thick and about 8 feet wide. they must have weighed tons.
my mind just could not imagine the work that went into making them much less how they were put in place and the hinges attached - simply mind boggling.
I hope that you can provide some photos once they are installed in their final resting place.

Question: once your outside projects are installed, who is responsible for maintaining the finishes ?
I know that clear coats like varnish need periodic maintenance so the wood will not deteriorate.

This is surely It? Right? I've think I've reached my limit of amazement.

So many things I can't comprehend.

Like it has been mentioned. Please. Pictures in final destination. Heck, even transportation shots.

That is a behemoth! Great job!

Um, ...wow. Sooo, for how long and how many people have been working on that?? I'm impressed with myself when I turn out a raised panel door for a cabinet, and here you guys are creating real artwork. That is amazing! How would you and your team like to come visit me at my house for a month or two?? My front door is some kind of composite...maybe we could rip it out and....

Transporting Door

even transportation shots.
Yamato - it didn't even dawn on me the massive undertaking just to transport
the door to the castle !!!
moving through the small busy streets of HCM City will take a police escort
all the way for the big truck.
yes please, if you can, share just a few photos of the transportation and installation process.
moving something that big, with such intricate carvings, with cables and ropes,
without breaking something is a miracle by itself.
is this the first huge project like this or have you done some before.
(I am assuming that there are many individual pieces that are bolted together on site to make one huge project).
simply AWESOME !!!

Yamato, all I can say is wow!!!!! After looking at it further I can't even begin to imagine how you designed, completed, transported & installed that work of art. The design itself is genius. Have never seen such a beautiful wooden work of art. You & your team are truly gifted with talent. Congratulations. Would like to see pictures of the transportation & installation of the project as well as pictures of other projects.

The door was assembled from many small details, some parts looked rather large but could be transported by truck. We shipped them to the site and we set them up, and finally repainted the doors

Painted? As in, white or some other color or do you mean refinished to freshen up after the move? Please tell me y'all didn't paint these beautiful doors!

Awesome


I did know someone who did something similar but not as fancy, when he completed it he realized he couldn't get it out of his basement.
