Padded foyer walls


In addition to needing a solution to fit the Palladian door upgrade, I wanted to eliminate the obviousness of the connectors on either side of the front door to obtain a cleaner look to the foyer. To that end, I first lined the wall between the two connectors with 3/32in thick basswood. This is the thickness of the connector edge leading toward the kitchen. I then lined over this layer with 1/8in thick balsa from the inner connector to the outer edge of the connector leading to the kitchen. I used bass wood and balsa since that's what I had on hand. Balsa is also very easy to cut around curves. To finish off the clean lines of the foyer, I filled in the side wall in the same manner as I had for the front wall. I needed only the 3/32in bass wood layer since the front wall was now a flat surface and I needed to match only the opposite connector. With the interior door trim taped in place, you can already see the cleaner lines of the walls.
