Made to Measure Hardwood Front Doors
We specialise in hand making bespoke made to measure front entry doors and frames in and around London, Essex and Hertfordshire. Using the latest technology along with traditional tried and tested methods and with the absolute best sprayed and hand applied coated finishes we offer not only the nicest appearance but also the best protection to what mother nature has to throw at it. We design every last detail from the ground up and as standard offer 55mm thick doors and side panels including solid wood laminated floating panels. As a result, our doors are extremely durable and built to outlast anyone else's. We usually pre-finish all of our doors and frames in our dedicated finishing room before carefully installing them at your home. We only use the best hardwoods that are FSC certified and hand select all of the components for the most stable grain patterns. We also, where possible, like to use laminated solid hardwood components for the rails and stiles of our handmade doors as they offer far better stability than single pieces which inherently warp with seasonal change. Below are only a small selection of some of our recent projects that offer different finishes (painted, stains and oils). As we offer unique designs for all of our joinery, we also carry this through to the glass and can tailor our glazed units to complement our door sets perfectly.
Made to Measure Oak Front Entry Doors
This is one of our recent bespoke made to measure solid oak entry door sets, built for a client in palmers green N13. Featuring heavily chamfered details to the main frame and extra chunky profiles. We opted for a full 55mm thick door and side panels, all made from 1oo% solid prime grade European oak which has been laminated to form very stable components. We utilise through-mortice and tenons along with profiled and scribed joinery to give the absolute strongest joints. In order to retain the natural beauty of the oak for an exterior application, we used a combination of UV protecting preservatives and natural Osmo UV protecting oils. The glass is a bespoke design of our own, made specifically for the client to compliment the bevels and chamfered details of the oak along with different patterns and obscured areas to match existing furniture pieces.
Here we display an internal view of the glass featured in our bespoke oak door set shown above.
Made to Measure Hardwood Sapele Arched Front Door
Here's a bespoke handmade Sapele front entry door made for a client in Winchmore Hill, N21. The client wished to replace an existing door but wanted to implement some of its characteristics and colour profile. We made the door a full 55mm thick for extra durability and strength while having opted for a prime grade solid Sapele hardwood. Fully laminated components were used to offer maximum stability along with mortice and tenon joints throughout. The finish applied was a Sikkens HLS base stain followed by multiple coats of Sikkens Filter 7.
Bespoke Hardwood Painted Front Entry Door and Frame
We built this custom made entry door set for a client in St Albans, AL4. It is made to the client's specification and featuring a clean and more modern take on a traditional 1930's front door. All is made from solid Sapele hardwood laminated components with a hand applied paint finish, featuring 6mm white laminated glass and quality fixtures and fittings.
