Arts and Crafts White Oak Door

Arts & Crafts Door Detail

Shown here is a detail of a quartersawn white oak door.  The stiles and rails are 1-3/4″ thick and are veneered with our own re-sawn 1/8″ thick book-matched veneers.   A stave-laminated mahogany core makes this reproduction door extremely stable and gives it a solid feel.  The door was dyed greenish brown and then stained with a reddish pigmented stain. The finish is four coats of marine varnish.  The complex finishing technique renders the door color different in changing light.
