He stacked over 50 pieces of particle board together in thin layers and then cut them out in unique shapes like a jigsaw puzzle. The door weighs a ton and has the design on both sides, so it adds an artistic flair to both my kitchen and the living area on the other side—which helps tie the rooms together.”
