Yet another giant update to this project! I finally finished the doors! This was the single most time-consuming and difficult aspect of this entire homebrew endeavor. I struggled with deciding on concept, materials, and structure for the doors for over a year, but finally figured out a way to make them look how I wanted, while still being sturdy enough to handle everyday use, and sit nicely on the board (over the wall edges) without taking up too much tile space. Check out my project site to see a detailed overview of how I made them.

How I made the doors:

I even got a head start on the Kellar's Keep special doors.

Bonus! Here's the first of my special tiles: The Spiral Staircase! Pretty basic design, but I wanted to keep it simple to mimic the simplicity of the original tile.

Feedback is welcome.
It's like a new pair of underwear; at first it's constrictive, but after a while it becomes a part of you. I have to go...

I like how your doors slot on the wall. Is it enough to provide more stability?

I think KISS works well with the spiral stairs--good work!

It's not a tight or "snap" fit like Lego or anything, but the base is wide enough to keep them from tipping easily, and straddling the walls keeps them from sliding out of place. I'm very happy with how they function.
