The main structure of the door is made with 3/8 inches baltic birch plywood and be connected with copper hinges. The door is fixed with a steel bolt, goes through a bearing and held on the wall with hex nut. The walnut veneer on the door hides the hinges to keep the cleanness of the finished surface.
