Arts and Crafts Mahogany Door

Often doors of this general design have a harsh or stiff look.  To soften, the look of this custom entry door, we incorporated tapered stiles and panels.  Take a close look you’ll see that the stiles (vertical members) taper from 5-1/2” at the bottom to 5” at the top.  The finish is hand brushed marine varnish. 

The lead “came” in the custom glass is also tapered to compliment the door design.  The flower depicted is the morning glory, representative of the indigenous foliage.  Notice even the grain in the hand blown Lamberts glass flows from panel to panel.
