Photos of a few jobs I've done.

   The entry doors to this luxury penthouse were just not 'elegant' enough, so I built and installed these two solid 'Cherry', full-lite doors (36" x 94" x 1 3/4") with matching casings.

"We replaced a single door, side lights and transom with a pair of double doors. We used Don Roberts. All his doors are handmade. He did a GREAT job and was very reasonably priced, a lot less than Pella."

Oversize wooden garage doors (hinged)
each door measures 5' x 8' x 2"
  Using "Spanish red cedar", I could keep the weight down to around 90 lbs each.

A completely new and improved look.

   This customer called to see if we could "refinish" his original entry doors. Turns out, that this was not at all practical - they were made from cheap pine, had multiple coats of old paint and leaked. The best solution was to build a new entry door, sidelites, and framework from "Sapele" mahogany, finished with satin varnish, using the original leaded glass panels.

Custom built entry doors, garage doors and sidelights of almost any any size and design using only the best quality "kiln dried" lumber.

Interior doors also available in a wider variety of hardwoods. I do not have anything in stock, as each door is custom made to order.
