Carpentry Techniques

About / Carpentry Techniques

I use only traditional, time proven construction techniques along with premium kiln dried woods to assemble  custom, solid wood doors. The joinery is very important so the door will not sag or come apart over time. The mortise and tenon jointery combines mechanical strength with a large glue surface. Each 3 inch long tenon is glued and through pegged with square dowels upon door construction. Some designs, can have many of these handmade joints. The mortise and tenon joint along with waterproof glue make a door that is incredibly strong, and will last a lifetime. We make all styles of old world doors including southwestern doors.
