Exemplary Craftsmanship: Exquisite Traditional French Doors Crafted to Perfection

Estate Millwork distinguishes itself as a stronghold of traditional craftsmanship, particularly within the domain of French door manufacturing. While many contemporaries have opted for modern methods and materials, we remain steadfast in our commitment to the time-honored techniques of French joinery, ensuring that every door we create embodies a fusion of elegance and robustness.

In contrast to the prevalent practice of utilizing stave cores, we uphold the age-old tradition of employing solid wood throughout the construction of our doors. Rather than relying on dowels and screws, each door undergoes meticulous crafting, featuring traditional mortise and tenon joints, meticulously hand-jointed solid stiles, and an array of custom sticking profiles. This unwavering dedication to authentic craftsmanship yields doors of unmatched quality and enduring charm.

Authentic Divided Lights: Guaranteed Unrivaled Quality in Every Detail

Our unwavering commitment to excellence permeates every aspect of our craft, particularly in our meticulous approach to divided lights. While some may opt for cost-effective alternatives like faux mullions and veneers, we steadfastly uphold the pre-war traditions that define true craftsmanship. Within each pane or "lite" of our doors lies authenticity, painstakingly fitted with time-honored cope and stick joints, ensuring a genuine and distinct character.

The discernible result speaks volumes; our doors exude a richness in texture, adorned with exquisite shadow lines and molding, embodying the unmistakable craftsmanship that sets heirloom-quality pieces apart from mass-produced alternatives.

Beyond their visual appeal, our true divided light doors offer unparalleled versatility for both interior and exterior applications. With an array of options including tempered glass, beveled glass, and various sticking designs such as mission and Georgian mosaic, our doors can be tailored to harmonize with any space or design preference. Our user-friendly online design tools facilitate effortless exploration of these options, while our expert team stands ready to provide personalized guidance and assistance for those seeking further customization.

At Estate Millwork, we take profound pride in our role as custodians of the artistry of traditional French door construction. Each door we meticulously craft is not merely a functional element but a timeless masterpiece, destined to endure and enrich the spaces it graces for generations to come.

Wooden Doors Fabricated from Premium Lumber Grades

Solid Wood Doors Built with Premium Grade Lumber

Stain Grade Lumber

For our louvered door products ordered in stain grade, we use FAS clear hardwood grades for both domestic and imported lumber. For projects requiring environmentally sensitive grades, we also offer FSC certification when required. We procure all of our lumber electronically, and order only the FAS clear grades. Additionally, we pre-select and inspect each shipment of lumber, and moisture check to insure that it meets our 8% standard. And as part of our routine quality process, each board from a unit of lumber is inspected as part of our quality louvered door manufacturing process.

Paint Grade Lumber

Even our economical paint grade louvered doors are manufactured from FAS grade lumber. The FAS specification controls the type of defects that are permitted, including knots, which we exclude from our paint grade products. However, features that would be considered defects in stain grade products -- color streaks, mineral discoloration etc, are not pertinent in paint grade. Typically, we use Poplar and occasionally Oak and Soft Maple for our paint grade products.

Color and Grain Matching

For high end louvered doors, we can offer a pre-selection service whereby all of the lumber required for the entire louvered door job is picked, inspected, and designated to be assembled as a unit at one time, which often results in boards from the same tree ending up in the same door for maximum consistency. When specified we can also book match raised panels and flat panels when used in our louvered doors.

Milling and Sawing Specifications

For our highly discriminating louvered door customers, we can offer our various hardwood species to be sawn in certain way, to emphasize a desirable feature of the wood. If required, the door material can be specified as flat-sawn, quarter-sawn, rift-sawn or ribbon sawn. Talk with your Estate Millwork louvered door specialist to inquire about adding these specifications to your order.

Top Quality and Elegant Custom Wood Doors

Estate Millwork creates each custom wood door from your detailed specifications. We use premium materials, state of the art equipment, and an experienced, quality oriented staff to produce our doors. We follow each of the steps below to produce the finest wooden doors on the market.

Hand Selection and Inspection of Materials

Our lumber procurement process is computer driven so that we are sure to be getting the best possible price on the highest quality materials. Once your order is "green-lighted" for production in our plant, the lumber demand is compared to our shop inventory and automatic replenishment orders are placed if necessary. When production begins on each custom door, the material is hand selected and the best of our high quality stock is used for the solid stiles of the doors. Louvers and rails are generally selected from the same lot of material to afford the best match, within the natural variation of hardwoods.

Precision Ripping of Rails and Stiles

We minimize the costs of our high quality products by maximizing the yield on the rough lumber. Once the lumber of the appropriate thickness has been selected, it is passed through our ripping department where a specialized gang rip saw is used to get the maximum yield from each board. Our operators are trained to reject defective materials either during the selection process or during the sawing process, as some defects are latent and are not visible until the board is "opened up".

Hand Jointing of All Door Components

The next step is to hand joint each rough sawn board to get a true flat edge, and to relieve any internal stress in the solid wood. This is a step that is skipped by many modern door manufactures, but one that we believe is so important that we honor the tradition. Our most skilled craftsmen in the plant are responsible for this function which requires judgement, precision and experience. Lower quality door manufacturers skip this step, or use particle cores and veneers to fake the look of a real door. But by hand jointing each board, we insure that every other step in the process is operating on a flat, smooth board, and that the door will remain stable for its lifetime.

Precision moulding of all door components

Once the rails and stiles have been ripped to width and jointed on one face, we process them through a 5 headed moulder which reduces the wooden door components (rails, stiles, louvers) to their final cross sectional dimensions and profiles. We offer 3 stock louver sizes, but can customize them to any other size or profile. Again, at this phase, parts are inspected for defects to make sure that the final piece meets our high standards

Precision CNC Machining of Mortises, Tenons and Louver Slots

Because we do not cut corners, we also use old fashioned, but time tested joinery. Our doors are held together with true mortise and tenon joints, rather than the cheaper, less time consuming and lower quality options of dowels, screws, or biscuits. Our mortise and tenon joints are so precise and tight fitting that gluing the doors is not even necessary, they hold themselves together. Our CNC eqiupment is accurate to .001 inch, and is automatically programmed by our advanced plant management system that monitors your order as it proceeds through each department. Our CNC operators are highly skilled and go through a year of specialized on the job training where they learn the safe operation of the equipment, and advanced techniques like radius and pattern machining.

Hand Assembly by Experienced Craftsmen

Once all of the custom door parts are completely machined, they are pre-sanded and then hand assembled by a team of meticulous craftsmen. On fixed louver doors, the louvers are hand beveled and inserted into the deep seat louver mortises in the stiles, and then the entire door is clamped in a clamping system while the pegs are drilled into the tenons. Operable Louver doors are assembled in a similar fashion, where each louver is set in a nylon bushing for maximum life, and a custom louver rod is attached to the louvers to give trouble free, friction free operation for many years.

Machine Sanding to tolerance

Once the door has been completely assembled, it goes through our machine sanding department -- giant sanders big enough to sand garage doors are used for multiple passes to bring the surfaces to their final dimensions and grit. In most cases our doors are machine sanded to 150 which removes most visible roughness.

Hand Sanding.

The final step in our process is the hand sanding of the doors to break edges, and to finish sand areas that are not sanded by the machine process. Our finishers are the best in the business and during this phase, they carefully inspect the finished product and either prepare it for paint or stain, or carefully pack the door for shipment.

White Oak: Timeless Beauty and Exceptional Versatility

White Oak Wood Grain

White Oak stands as a remarkable domestic hardwood, prized for its widespread availability and affordability without compromising on quality. With its inherent strength and remarkably straight grain, white oak proves itself to be a versatile and easy-to-work-with material, ideal for crafting furniture, cabinets, and wider panels with seamless matching.

What truly sets White Oak apart is its captivating medullary rays, which become strikingly visible when the wood is quartersawn, adding a touch of elegance and character to any project. Once favored during the arts and crafts movement of the early 1900s, White Oak continues to be a preferred choice for furniture building, while its applications have expanded to include a myriad of uses in modern design and construction.

Beyond its aesthetic appeal, White Oak's unique cellular structure lends it exceptional water resistance, making it a preferred option for exterior applications ranging from trim and construction to garden structures. While its appearance may seem unremarkable at first glance, White Oak's true beauty shines through during the finishing process, allowing its natural charm to emerge.

Scientifically known as Quercus alba, White Oak boasts a pale, creamy color with grain patterns characterized by straight lines and distinctive ray flecks, adding to its timeless allure. Whether used for custom cabinetry, hardwood flooring, or refined furniture, White Oak brings a touch of classic elegance to every project. Renowned for its durability and resistance to wear, decay, and rot, White Oak ensures that your investment will withstand the test of time, promising lasting beauty and functionality for generations to come.

Handcrafted with Sustainably Harvested Lumber

At Estate Millwork, we employ a meticulous process to ensure the quality and sustainability of our lumber. Our commitment begins with the careful air drying of much of our lumber, followed by further refinement in low wattage dehumidification kilns to achieve optimal moisture levels.

Every single piece of wood we acquire undergoes thorough utilization in our production processes. Leveraging advanced automated saws and optimization software, we achieve an exceptional yield ratio of 94 percent. This means that nearly all of the wood we purchase is transformed into usable products. The small remainder, comprising mainly sawdust and chips, is utilized efficiently: either utilized as fuel to power our operations, or repurposed by providing bedding and contributing to composting for local cattle farmers.

Our dedication to minimizing waste extends to the sourcing of our materials. A significant portion of the lumber we use hails from Amish farmers within our county. These farmers adhere to traditional practices, utilizing horses for harvesting and operating vintage 1920s sawmills. Such methods not only contribute to the preservation of heritage techniques but also entail lower environmental impact compared to modern industrial approaches.

Furthermore, our commitment to sustainability is evident in the sourcing of our imported lumber. We exclusively procure lumber from plantation-grown sources, thereby ensuring that our operations do not contribute to deforestation or the depletion of natural forests. By prioritizing responsible sourcing and efficient utilization, Estate Millwork strives to uphold environmental stewardship while delivering exceptional craftsmanship.
