Bespoke Doors: Reclaimed and Engineered Wood

Interior Doors

It is difficult to find doors with character which are ‘off the shelf’; most people looking for doors fall into two categories. Those wanting to bring the warmth of wood with character into a new build house, and those needing to replace or add to original doors in an existing property.

We specialise in doors made from reclaimed oak and pine but in an engineered finish for strength and stability.

Styles of Internal Doors

The Cobham (4-Panel Oak door), The York (Chamfered Slab Oak door) and The Cornwall (Double-Z Oak door). All three styles come in either Heritage oak or French oak. 

Types of Wood Used

Heritage Oak is very distinctive. This lovely reclaimed oak exhibits dark, rich honey tones with even darker, wavy figuring.

French Oak has a lighter appearance and generally straighter grain but still shows character with the knots. These occur when a branch dies and a layer of wood grows over it.      

Sliding Doors / Barn Doors

The majority of orders we receive for sliding barn doors are for internal uses but occasionally we have made external ones. 

Sliding doors have a variety of functions – acting as a room divider giving flexibility of use from a party room to a cosy room; door solutions to tight spaces; visual impact to a room division. 

We handcraft the stunning sliding doors from reclaimed oak and spruce in our Yorkshire workshops. Each order varies in size, and occasionally, we need a forklift to offload them onto the site!

Sliding doors are available in four finishes, Heritage Oak, Barn Oak, Silver Spruce and Brown Spruce. We have covered the Heritage Oak description in the internal doors; Barn Oak comes from old barns, hence the name, the colouration is a treasure trove of hues depending on the orientation of the building with north, west, south and east all weathering in a different way; it is our skilful joiners who lay the patterns of the leeward and windward boards for the engineering processes.

Silver Spruce and Brown Spruce (also called Hayloft) are two sides of the same board. The Silver Spruce is the side open to the elements in its original position on a barn. The Brown Spruce (Hayloft) is the back of the board facing the inside of the barn and not weathered. There are two distinct colours, one dark and one blonde. The grain on the external face, the Silver Spruce, is naturally open due to the weathering process of more than 100 years. In the workshops, we brush the Brown Spruce (Hayloft) to give it more of a textured finish.

Examples of Our Bespoke Doors

We designed and installed this Reclaimed Barn Oak Exterior Door in Cornwall. Left in its natural state as it had originated from the elements. Fitted as an external door to stop a wind tunnel. 

The orientation and choice of wood planks in making a sliding door can create different looks. You can see this in the photos above.

Standard sliding doors are vertical or horizontal in plank orientation. However, we can accommodate special orders for diagonal, diagonal/square basket, diagonal/square herringbone, or double herringbone patterns.

We make all the sliding door rails to order, so size is never a problem. There are four finishes, Raw, Matt Black, Rusted and Oiled, there will be one which suits the project perfectly. Check out our website and pinterest for inspiration.

*Please note that as doors are made from a natural product the colour, grain knots and markings will vary from batch to batch, as well as from one plank to another, making our timbers a truly unique natural product.*
