scavenged finds: doors

Dad found these lovely solid-wood doors being thrown away, and rescued them from the side of the road.

Dad suggested to cut out the wood and install glass at the top, then use them as doors from the kitchen to verandah in the old house.

But I think that seems a shame, and would rather hang onto them as they are. Eg: they'd be great to use as doors from the library to the tower section, if we went back to the idea of having a big centrally open part (which I'm leaning towards doing).

Also, earlier Dad found these other somewhat shabbier door and window set, which I think he wants to use for the external side entrance to the laundry

I'm not in love with them, but they should scrub up OK. They are solid wood, which is the important thing (not plastic).
