The doors (1 Kings 6:31-6:36)

“For the entrance to the inner sanctuary he made doors of olivewood. The lintel and the doorposts were a five-sided pentagon. He covered the two doors of olivewood with carvings of cherubim, palm trees, and open flowers. He overlaid them with gold, and spread gold on the cherubim and on the palm trees. So also he made for the entrance to the nave doorposts of olivewood, in the form of a square, and two doors of cypress wood. The two leaves of the one door were folding, and the two leaves of the other door were folding. On them he carved cherubim, palm trees and open flowers. He overlaid them with gold evenly applied upon the carved work. He built the inner court with three courses of dressed stone and one course of cedar beams.”

The entrance door to the inner sanctuary was made of olivewood, also a hard wood. There were other doors made of cypress as the entrance to the inner sanctuary. This continued with the carvings of cherubim, palm trees, and flowers on these doors and the other doors. They also used gold overlay all over the place. The door posts were either a pentagon shape or a square shape.
