Yes, your bathroom door is definitely better than my bathroom door. No comparison.

Echoing bathroom soundbox, pretty door top soundwood.

All you need now is something to generate a baritone sound from inside and you'd have a giant ukulele. Any ideas?

Please post a video. Lol

Maybe you could string up some wires on the inside a' la' diddley bow and play some blues when you can't go?

Enquiring minds want to know...has it improved the tone of the sounds coming from that room? LOL

Hey Stan, did you get the proper documentation to ensure it isn't an illegaly imported exotic wood bathroom door?

Eh Bruddah Stan,
String it up like an Autoharp, then you can play "I hear you knocking, but you can't come in".

If you like it now, you'll love it in a few years when it "opens up".

Ingenious! The shower humidity inside the bathroom will keep the wooden door from developing cracks. It'll always project the bathroom sounds with good volume and tone.

I'm wondering, though, if it's a tad bright and pinchy sounding? Or, is it more warm? Soundfile please.

makes a great 1 piece solid body uke, no bookmatching required.

The plain straight grain on your ukes probably sounds better.

if you have the constipation blues then i guess that laminate mahogany door would be made by poohno instead of pono !!!!

Our toilet door has teeth marks in from the constipation blues

Braddah Stan:

I think your door looks so nice because it is flatsawn, not quartersawn like the wood on your ukuleles.

You can come out of the bathroom now.

Ya, curly mahogany is really hard to find. I'd say you'd be best to go down to Home Depot and find one of these fabulous and figured hollow core doors and taken it to your nearest builder for a custom. Guaranteed to be psychedelic~ (with that warm mahogany tone!)

At the top of the door (so it goes through the framing wood) screw in a metal hook or an eye. To that, attach a length of weed whacker line which will reach to the floor. To that end, after drilling a hole through a broom handle (by the broom head, if you want to keep using it for its intended purpose) run the line and tie a simple knot. Place the bottom of the broom against the bottom of the door and tighten the line. Pluck away to your heart's content. It is very effective for getting people out of the bathroom!! When I was in the USN, someone did it on a quonset hut with a piece of parachute line. It really lets one know what it is like to have someone tap on the side of a fish bowl. If there is a bedroom door nearby, you and someone else could have a musical dooret.

Or better than a hook eye, screw in some Pegheads so that you can easily adjust the tension of the weed whacker line.

Ha Ha sounds like a great Gag for my younger years....but I'm a old fogie now...if I did that, it would irritate me and drive me nuts too...
