Metal doors

Sheet iron doors were very popular in the glan valley of carinthia southern Austria, they were made from recycled plowshares which were flattened out and riveted together to make these patch work doors, iron was a very expensive commodity in medieval times, due to the very labour intensive process of making it.

This door was made from a recyled coal bunker, the bottom had rusted out, so i decided put rest of it to good use, about 300 rivets were used in the making , the finish was achieved by polishing the door with a heavy wire wheel and coating with owatrol anti rusting oil.
