  1. Excellent resource. Can I ask if you did anything with the trim around the inside of the doors’ window frames? What are those made of? I’m looking at a W108 and those look all dried and checked/peeling, but not sure even what material they are made of.

    There should be a link to your pages from http://www.w108.org for sure.

    1. Thanks! The pieces around the doors are just wood, like everything else. Its thin, and I believe the top layer is veneer. Water damage is common here, and usually destroys the pieces. Your best bet is to find a good used set to start with. You can refinish them like any of the other wood. Good luck!
