    Susan, I previously posted saying how amazing this is and that I'd have to steal the idea..... I just wanted you to know that I've just posted a project that was inspired by your post. It'seems entitled: 'Whoa, now that's a door'. If you want to check out what I've done. Thanks again for the inspiration.
