Nautical Style Wood Hatch - A Submarine Inspired wood door

Overview of my Nautical Door, this is a complete walkthrough of the door and how it works. This was made over a span of 3 months. I made this at home (after work) using pretty much every tool I own. When I asked if I could make something at home and install it at work permanently, they said yes without knowing what I was going to do. I gave them a brief description of the idea I had in my head and they got excited. It has been installed now over a year and it has even become a part of our sales tour. Very few people have seen this and their response is always positive. They keep telling me to make a video of it because they would like to show it to their friends. So here is the video!
