A beautiful, wooden door makes a warm, inviting entrance to any home. And it isn’t as difficult to build as you might think. It also doesn’t take all that much wood.

We made this door out of cedar with pinned mortise and tenon joinery,so it’s not only beautiful, but it’s strong and it will last a very long time.

CONSTRUCTION: The Handcrafted Door is 80”high x 32” wide x 1-1/8” thick. We built our door out of 2×6and 2×8 cedar. The stiles and rails are joined using a form of mortise and tenon joinery called drawbore joinery.
