What goes into making a solid wooden door?


Well in this solid wooden Victorian 4 Panel example shown here you can see exactly how it is constructed.


Each rail has its own specific Mortice and Tenon joints and these are firmly held into place with wedges in the wood.


Each panel is handmade out of solid wood and has its own specific design. These are based on the type of section design of the panel whether it be a flat panel or a more intricate design.


This original method of construction is why a Cotswood door will have an authentic Period look and finish.
