Bespoke Oak Door made from American White Oak with Oak TGV panels. The images show the manufacture and assembly of the door through to the door fitted in its final resting place. The door needed to be made because the dimensions required were not an off the shelf size, i used through mortice and tennon joints and pegged these through the stiles with 12mm Oak dowels to make sure that it remains stable due to the location of the property where the door was fitted -on a water front property facing south west- so its going to get a battering from the elements. The exterior of the door and the edges have been finished prior to fitting with 3 coats of marine grade primer its an aluminium based paint where microscopic particles of aluminum ‘knot’ together to give a tough barrier the customer will finish the door with marine grade undercoat and gloss. The interior of the door can be polished or waxed to show the grain.

Traditional standards. Traditional tradesman. Traditional service.
I have been a carpenter for over 45years, 5 year apprenticeship as a boat builder, 2 years as a wood machinist, then a spell repairing furniture and manufacturing reproduction antique clocks. I spent a further 15 years working in a therapeutic environment passing on my skills, before setting myself up as a self-employed carpenter/joiner.
As you will appreciate, I undertake a wide range of projects, so scrolling through the site map may well direct you to past work that may be similar to your requirements.
The preferred way to contact me is by using the contact page on this site. However you can always ring me during normal working hours. Lead times vary depending on the time of year; small jobs I can often do promptly.
I cover Southampton and I am also happy to visit Winchester and Salisbury areas, but a small fee will be charged.
