Glad you like them. Looking forward to make the outer hasp, inner locking bar and some door handle.
Off to the smithy now, need to make some nails to attach the hinges. Can't force myself to use modern nails or woodscrews.

It works! There are some dangs and scratches on the door, no big deal. I'll need to repeat filling and painting the door anyway, due to shrinking of the "perfectly dry" wood I bought for it.
Now we really need to start working on the stairs, the palette pile must go...

Here are some photos of my today's hatch smithing.
If you guys like the stuff and would be interested to get something similar for your yurt, just PM me.

Started by making the loop:






Now the moving part of the hatch:




And the fixed part:


Its end is reduced and prolonged, then formed into a loop:


The moving part was slipped into the nearly-closed loop, then the loop is highly heated to be welded:


And the weld is successfull:


Now just a handful of nails and the set is complete:


Will install it tomorrow. For now I'll use a store-bought paddle lock, but I always wanted to try some of the mediaeval ones, so I hope to make one when I have time.
Need to make inner locking bar and thinking about one archaic door handle system.
