I think you don't see round doors IRL because they'd be quite impractical. Since there's only one point to attach a hinge to, all the weight would be on that one point, instead of distributed over two or three points like rectangular doors. You'd have to overbuild the hinge, or else it would bend and break. Especially on a door as heavy as this one looks.

But they might be practical for very round people.

I was really hoping this one would get printed.

For the curious, here's the start of The Hobbit:

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.

It had a perfectly round door like a porthole, painted green, with a shiny yellow brass knob in the exact middle. The door opened on to a tube-shaped hall like a tunnel: a very comfortable tunnel without smoke, with panelled walls, and floors tiled and carpeted, provided with polished chairs, and lots and lots of pegs for hats and coats – the hobbit was fond of visitors. The tunnel wound on and on, going fairly but not quite straight into the side of the hill – The Hill, as all the people for many miles round called it – and many little round doors opened out of it, first on one side and then on another. No going upstairs for the hobbit: bedrooms, bathrooms, cellars, pantries (lots of these), wardrobes (he had whole rooms devoted to clothes), kitchens, dining-rooms, all were on the same floor, and indeed on the same passage. The best rooms were all on the left-hand side (going in), for these were the only ones to have windows, deep-set round windows looking over his garden, and meadows beyond, sloping down to the river.

I thought this was a bit racy for a moment but then I remembered "The Green Door" title wasn't on the shirt.

Huh... anyone else think of Behind The Green Door?

I guess it is semi-intentional?

Anyone else old enough to wonder what's Behind this Green Door? (you would have to be 21 to order that shirt)

The lush grassy look is very well achieved. It makes me think of the Secret Garden or maybe even Alice in Wonderland or Totoro. ^_^

Oh! I love this! It's beautiful! Except... It would look like a third boob. Sad. I sort of-almost-kind of-maybe wish I were a man, so I could wear this shirt...

I learn so much from you guys it almost scares me. I do know I will not be building any round doors now, that's for sure.

Not to mention trying to build the doorway itself. Good choice going with brick, Bilbo.

Oh I don't know about that, round doors are certainly possible. The glove box I work in in lab has round doors, you just need to use non-traditional hinging. Here's something like how I would hinge a round wooden door, the hinge would have to actually extend past the door and mount on the interior house wall with the door protruding out into the round doorway to make the seal.

Then there's this kind of hinge which is the kind on the big door in my glove box


Edit*** actually here's a good view of the first kind of hinge I thought of for the hobbit door.

. . . You say 'third boob' like it's a *bad* thing?

This is what I imagined...
I fully think it is possible... Even though it is not the most practical (unless as mentioned before, one is rotund).
I have always had an imagery of the hobbit hole, and while it does look strikingly like this in my mind, it would as mentioned before, look strikingly like a third boob, and no, that is not a good thing (in this planet anyway).

I knew it was a hobbit hole as soon as I saw the tiny pic on the main page, but the title just made me think of the IT Crowd.

If I buy hobbit feet slippers and this shirt, I'll be a step closer to dressing awesomely for 'The Hobbit' premiere. >:D

Bah, Don't listen to them. My toilet seat is basically a round shape and it has two hinges.

If you get to the past the part about digging a hole into the side of a hill and furnishing it as an English mansion, the round door part should be trivial.

Wow, I didn't think of that! I wonder if having a "third boob" would draw attention from the other two? I am not exactly, well I am what used to be called "well-endowed". This shirt might actually help if I wore it a little loose. I'll have to think about it.

Patrickspens does it again!

This'll make the 4th shirt I've purchased by this artist. (Samurai & Sea Dragon, Swept Away, Sakura Samurai). A Patrickspens design virtually guarantees my daughter (high-school age) will want the shirt. Plus since she's a HUGE Tolkien fan, this is like twice as many reasons to buy the shirt.

Patrickspens: Hope you enjoy always getting my money every time shirt woot offers one of your shirts. ;-)

HAH! My first thought was... it's a boob... But if you get it you can pretend to be the three breasted hooker from total recall!

At first I did not realize the door was a reference to anything from the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings. I thought it was a reference to cheat sheet since there is an old porno names "Behind the Green Door"

I was thinking maybe if they made it a hobbit duplex? Then maybe it'd have an enhancing effect...

If this were a poster, I'd buy it. Or even printed on the back of the shirt? Next time around, maybe?

I agree completely. This was the first thing that came to my mind as well. I like the shirt but can't have a, um, door built into my hill(s). Wish it was a poster.

Stated perfectly. A door in the valley would just be inaccurate.
