Elegant, antique, interior door salvaged from an old home in Northeastern Ohio. It has a solid oak core with 1/8" oak veneers, and it still retains its original stain and finish. There are 5 recessed panels on both sides of the door.
Please don't think that "veneer" means inferior quality. Unlike the paper-thin veneers used on modern doors and furniture, these veneers are 1/8" thick and provide strength and stability to the door. Oak is a very dense wood and the door would've warped long ago if it weren't for its veneers.
Hardware: The door is not equipped with any hardware. However, we have a good selection of period hardware to outfit the door (check out our eBay store).
* If you would like any of the hardware holes plugged with a solid wood, please email us for a quote.
Condition: On the exterior side of the door, the veneers on the top of the hinge stile, the bottom of the hinge stile, the lock stile and the top rail are chipped; the veneer on the bottom of the hinge is cracked; and a strip of veneer is missing from the bottom edge of the lock stile.
On the interior side of the door, the veneers on the top and bottoms of the lock and hinge stiles, are chipped and cracked.
If you are planning on painting, the missing portions of veneer could be filled with a combination of wood putty, glue, and saw dust. However, if you want to stain and finish, we could add veneer where it's missing--email us for a quote.
Otherwise, the door is in great shape with only surface scrapes, scratches, small nail holes--minor cosmetic blemishes, which would be removed during the finishing process or covered if painted.
Refinish/Repaint: We could refinish, repaint, or partially or completely strip the door to prepare it for you to repaint or refinish. See the last photos in this auction as an example of our work. Email us with a small description of what you would like done, and we'll give you a quote.
Swing: The door was set up to swing into a room and end up on your left side. We could make it swing the other way--email us for a quote.
Modification: We could also modify the door to fit your opening or suite your needs. We could make a frame, trim or add to the height or width, replace panels with glass, reverse the swing, plug the hardware holes, etc. Email us with a small description of what you would like done, and we'll give you a quote.
