    Just in case anyone's interested. I built a pretty close(on the front at least) replica of Bilbo's house.

    It is for sale by the way, if anyone's interested. It took far longer than I expected to build, and I don't fancy ever doing another. Quite a bit of Maths to get the curves. I recon the door weighs at least 12 stone, and the whole project about 4 tons.


    I was going to upload files, but unfortunately most are more than 1meg. You can see more pictures here:

    Hi. It's on wheels right now, which I don't envy one bit - it's being so heavy. They are just until it gets a permanent home though.

    It's quite a big project, so I wouldn't undertake lightly. I don't fancy building another, I must admit.

    I had the door hinge plasma cut out of 8mm steel. I had to pay for the CAD work to be done, but after that they charged me £200.

    I can put you in touch, if you want a similar hinge.

    Good luck with your project.
