love making doors at The Wooden Window & Door Co.! It
is mostly because requests for doors usually come from customers
who by nature are quite eccentric, thus, the door is reflective
of this eccentricity. We have a lot of fun here when the creativity
component is alive. That being said, we can make any style
of interior or exterior door. Our exterior doors usually run
between 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 thick!
you can view just some of our entrance systems and doors -
everything you see on this page was
made exclusively by us from scratch in our own shop in Woodville,
difficult to tell from this photo just how big the actual
door is in this entrance system we built for a Prince Edward
Island customer. At 42" x 98" this is a massive
mahogany door. Uniquely clean radius work here as well...
nicely designed mahogany entrance system going to New Brunswick
for our friends at Craftsman Construction. This one will get
art glass for both decoration and privacy.
'Dutch' entry door we built for a customer in Halifax. This
one has a dentil shelf, frosted glass for privacy and a nice
solid brass handle. Should look really nice once the finishing
above 2 images of an elliptical mahogany entrance system we
built for Craftsman
Construction in PEI. This particular entry went to a beautiful
home they built in New Brunswick. The biometric fingerprint
reader you see here doesn't simply actuate a deadbolt, rather
it opens the door automatically by releasing a 3-lock multipoint
mechanism. Bleeding edge technology...
The above 2 photos of a classically elegant round-top, double
door set. This set was done in mahogany and features and earth-tone
granite sill, multipoint lockset and single-throw astragal
bolt. A high quality entrance for a local, high profile historic
property. Thanks Mike and Jenny...
above 3 exterior doors were part of a thematic 5 door set
we made for a new build in Mabou, Cape Breton. It's not very
often one would see 2-1/4" thick mahogany doors painted
but this customer was confident in their vision and although
initially sceptical, we would later understand this vision.
Well seen guys...
in the very bottom photo you can see slots on the outside
of the jamb. This nicely illustrates the holding power and
extra warp protection that a multipoint lock provides...)
there's a nicer set of carriage house doors out there... we
haven't seen them.
massive, 12' high oak entrance we built for the Brydon family.
Welcome back to NS guys and I hope you will be very happy
in your new home.
lovely mahogany entrance we built for Pinehurst Homes iin
Fall River. Thanks Todd.
all our wine cellar door customers - I'm always a tad envious
every time we complete one of your doors. An admitted wino,
I know how nice its going to be for you passing through this
door into your little grape dungeon and yes, it makes me envious
that I don't have one too... Someday...
tasteful example we shipped to Calgary, Alberta.
traditional craftsman with a cleanly integrated transom. I
often forget how nice natural finished mahogany actually is...
This one went to Wolfville, NS.
with an impossibly shallow eyebrow transom. If there is one
thing I want to convey from the above 3 images to potential
customers whom want a transom but don't really have the height
in their plan - we can probably pull it off for you. We are
probably the only people who can make this type of product
possible. I include the detail of the bottommost image to
illustrate how efficient and clean our designs are. To tuly
appreciate this entrance one really needs to see it installed
and with trim affixed. Here its a bit like a picture without
shaker style arts and crafts African mahogany entrance finished
natural with clear coat only. This one has a dentil shelf
and a 3-point multipoint lockset. This one is going to Charlottetown
double door set we made for St. Andrews United Church in Rexton
New Brunswick. These are replica's of their old doors whick
were beyond repair. Made exclusively of mahogany with classically
wide middle lock rails we are particularly proud of this result
which encorporates some of the most complex joinery you will
see in a set of ogival style doors. Below are some close-ups
of the joinery...
in mind this is not simply a carved out panel from one piece
of glued-up mahogany - these are all floating panels housed
in stick-cope joinery. Also, all the raised panels here are
single boards - we have an inventory of extra wide stock which
allows us to give our customers the best of quality.
arts and crafts mahogany entrance with a generous
classic colonal trim adornment...
one identical to the above only with a really
nice transom affixed...
unfinished traditional pine entry going to
a customer in Greenwich. NS...
all-mahogany entrance going to Middle
Musquodoboit. This customer had a
photo of an entrance that they simply
had to have for their new home and
replica's are our specialty. We did
matching interior and exterior trim
kits that are quite striking in design.
Thank you Laura and Seth.
above five photos are from a project we completed
this past summer for a home in Port Williams,
NS. Both main entrance and side door are eight
feet in height and were crafted with mahogany
doors/jambs and granite sills. These are both
good examples of our shaker style doors. Items
to note here are the insulated panels, exclusive
use of multipoint technology and finally,
the engraving of the customers house number
in the granite sill. We now have a large 13'
x 7' CNC machine that will both engrave granite
and mill wood. A big addition to our business!
You can watch the video of the engraving of
this actual sill here...
of our more classic designs. We fitted this mahogany
entrance with a granite sill and a Gretsch-Unitas
multipoint lockset and lever trim. We met up with
an old friend whom did the install - thank you Mr.
Pat Farrell for making us look good!
built this mahogany entrance for a couple in Kingston,
NS who wanted something traditional and organic. A
good example of one of our more modern designs. Although
not very clear from this picture, we used frosted
thermal pane glass as our customer wanted to maximize
on light but maintain privacy. This is the darkest
stain we've ever used on mahogany but the grain still
shows nicely. We shipped this system completely assembled
and it was a heavy piece...
mahogany entrance we built for a customer on the South
Shore has a few defining features worth noting. We
are now offering stone/granite sills for our entrance
systems - you can see in the second pic from the top
just how seamlessly our sill melts into the rest of
the stone. We've added our shop drawings here as well
for future reference with our designer/architect contacts...
The other point of interest are the large bolection
raised moldings. These are old-school size and although
my picture doesn't show it very well, the same molding
is continued over to the sidelites. With these bolection
moldings both on the interior and exterior, this door
is over 4" thick at its widest points.
classy arched, v-grooved mahogany with glass just
big enough for Mike's head... This one went to Bridgetown,
of 5 arch top mahogany doors we built for a customer
on the South Shore. The porthole you see is solid
brass and best of all - it's operable...
double door set that will be installed into a yurt...
I didn't actually know what a yurt was until I met
the owners of Little
Foot Yurts. If you want to buy or rent a world
class yurt give Alex and Selene a call...
above 5 photos of a mahogany double door set going
to Annapolis Royal - Granville Ferry. This is a reproduction
set which will replace a drafty, beyond repair door
set in a lovely Victorian home. Things to notice here
are the single-throw astragal latch which holds the
inactive door and the multipoint (3 points) lockset
for the active door. Ultra modern functionality wrapped
is beautiful mahogany architecture...
entrance systems we built for Bentley
Built Homes The top photo is a standard 80"
entrance and the bottom is an oversize 96". This
is a fresh, clean design with a narrow string of cobalt
blue lights atop. Thanks John and Denise!
