I've got an old wood door I'm refinishing for our 1938 craftsman wanna-be, and I'd like to do this right (well, as near to correct as I can). In my research I've noticed that alot of door manufacturers market a 'craftsman' door that has a ledge fixed beneath the windows. I would love to immitate this, and wondered if anyone could give me some details about this feature. So far, I've only seen it on websites selling doors, and I'd love a 'real' idea of what this ledge is. Does it go on the interior and exterior? What size should it be? Is there somewhere I can find plans or pics of this?
Thanks for any input, and here's a link to some pics where you can see the door I'm working on:
