Wood for each project is carefully selected matching grains and tones. Each part is inspected through every phase of the building process. Stile, rail and mullion construction utilize either composite, timber strand or solid wood stave cores with solid 3/4 inch edging along with 1/4 inch or 5/8 inch thick wood faces, laminated or solid woods. Panels for exterior doors and some interior doors are built using two separate panels allowing outside and inside panels to move independently. Traditional mortise and tenon or birch dowels are used for assembly. These techniques represent some of the absolute best in past and modern craftsmanship to produce an extremely stable door. Door jambs are built to the correct wall thickness and not just the standard 4 9/16" or 6 9/16" eliminating the need for jamb extensions. Ball bearing hinges in select finishes are offered. Standard thickness for both interior and exterior doors is 1 3/4 inch.
