Carpentry Techniques

About / Carpentry Techniques

I use only traditional, time proven construction techniques along with premium kiln dried woods to assemble my 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 an extremely large glue surface. Each 3 inch long tenon has an average of 24 square inches of gluing surface and is also through pegged with square dowels upon door construction. Some designs, can have many of these handmade joints. The mortise and tenon joint along with modern waterproof glues make a door that is incredibly strong, and will last a lifetime.
