Doors create a magnificent first impression. Yours can go beyond being a
simple entry way to one that reflects your personality and adds character and
warmth. We use solid old growth reclaimed Doug Fir lumber 40 - 100 years old
gleaned from demolished houses, barns and businesses. Mid century all lumber
was original growth and only rough sawn at the mill so a 2 X 4 was a full 2” X
4”. After that the wood was planed down or surfaced four sides so that it
becomes a 1-1/2 X 3-1/2”. We identify our lumber by only purchase full inch
In some cases the wood can be hundreds of years old and could have been even
older before it was used in the structure it was found in. Knowing the age
helps determine the wood’s density and how well it stands up to the process of
reclaiming it. From simple to elaborate our rustic doors can provide you with
the look, personality and mood you want.
No two doors can ever be exactly alike. The defects are naturally made and are
random and will vary board to board.
Natural characteristics are knots of different sizes, variations in color,
grain swirl, wormholes, pin holes.
This is part of the charm of using reclaimed lumber. You can request a very
rustic look with the natural nail holes, hail marks, weathered by storms, pin
holes, termite holes from long ago critters that no longer inhabit these doors
or you can ask that we choose less rustic wood.
Most of our doors are deeply influenced by castle doors from England, Spain
and Italy. Built from solid reclaimed Doug Fir wood our arched wrought iron
hand forged pounded pieces you see decorating our doors giving a charm and
uniqueness only limited by imagination.
Our niche is using very old kiln dried wood to make rustic doors. If you want
your door to look like brand new wood in a rustic style then tell us and we
will use brand new wood. Otherwise, you are getting a piece of history.
We use Doug Fir that is solid reclaimed lumber and we can choose wood that is
less rustic and sanded smooth for a less rustic look or choose wood that has a
more rustic quality. You can decide.
The doors are made in America by our talented artisans in our warehouse here
in San Diego. When we purchase the wood from a third generation demolition
company here in California our guys pull out any nails and metal embedded in
the wood, give the wood a good cleaning and sand old paint off of the wood so
that you will get the finish that you desire. One of the reasons you are using
reclaimed lumber is to highlight the wood’s aged beauty. Once the carpenters
have removed all unnatural blemishes from the wood it is now a canvas for your
Each piece of wood is unique and is used to create unique doors and windows.
Each beam is like a historical artifact and every one has it’s own story. Your
door had a life before it came to you and it may have had a life before that.
It could have been in a farmhouse dating back to colonial America or on a wall
in a Duke’s palace in Italy. There is something special about being able to
say that your door offers character shaped from it’s previous life. There is
not a way to get a wood as characterized as reclaimed wood. This old wood is
unique in color variation more than anything you can get from a lumber company
that sells virgin wood.
Doug Fir is a very good choice because it naturally resists most kinds of
weathering without a lot ofpaint or product. Old growth wood is better in every
way. It has already experienced the weather and time and has multiple color
tones because of the weather. The amount of time a board was exposed to rain
and sunlight and other environmental factors often dictates the exact color of
the finished product. Old growth Doug Fir tends of have a tight grain pattern
that is quite coveted. This means the actual grain of the wood is in a smaller
pattern than other wood types. This leads to durability. The beauty of this
wood is minimal care after installation.
This old growth Doug Fir has a ton of character elements that are not there in
new wood pieces. Old nail holes from use, worm damage and more all adds to the
character of the barn wood.
Last but not least is choosing reclaimed lumber is a sustainable option that
reduces deforestation thus helping to protect the eco system. Instead of
cutting down new trees this is a great way to repurpose wood that has already
been in use. Not only a good choice but a beautiful choice.
