Our arched Tree of Life door is an example of how we bring your vision into reality. When it comes to fine art carved wooden entrances, at ArtFactory.com, your options are limited only by your imagination. We believe in building furniture and doors that are not something that you just use for a few years and then throw away. Building items that are disposable is a practice that is unique to the past fifty years. In the old world, when a piece of furniture was built, it was built from solid, natural materials by master craftsmen. Most importantly, it was built to last forever. Something like a solid wood entrance door would be passed down through a family for generations along with the home that was also built to last forever. With this custom carved, arched Tree of Life door, built from solid, full length timber, we have carried that tradition of built to last craftsmanship. A true modern masterpiece inspired by historic designs, and built with period correct methods and materials. Starting with a concept provided by one of our clients, our designers, carvers, and woodworkers created an amazing piece of art rich in history and mythological significance.
This type of product cannot be built overnight, or with low quality materials. That is why we use the highest quality, full length, solid wood. Then we build it by hand, using the age old, tried and tested method of mortise and tenon joinery. This type materials and construction makes for a product that will stand the test of time. This door is carved with a multi-level, high relief process that creates both positive and negative reliefs. All of our wood carvers are classically trained in the old world methods of fine art carving. To be recognized as certified fine art, all carvings must be in the same hand technique. That is why our products are never gang carved, CNC machined, or carved using any type of fast process. This assures that each door is a unique, one-of-a-kind work of fine art. These details are especially relevant in the eyes of appraisers when judging a piece as fine art. This is a single door in a pre-hung solid wood jamb as pictured, but can be built as double doors or with any number of other options. All of our custom door designs are available with or without optional viewing windows, speakeasy portals, sidelights, transoms, or anything else you can imagine. Furthermore, although this is a full arched topped design as pictured, like all of our custom entrances, it can be built with a semi-arched, or flat top, and for residential or commercial, interior or exterior use.
Arched Tree Of Life Door Historical Inspiration
The Tree of Life carries scientific as well as religious significance. In the book, "On the Origin of Species," Charles Darwin used a tree as a metaphor for the interconnecting relationships of organisms throughout evolution. Other metaphors about trees represent spiritual concepts.
Versions of the Tree of Life have are found in various cultures, including Egyptian, Armenian, Chinese, Indian, Native American, Mayan, and many more. For Ancient Egypt, the tree represented the chain of events that brought life into existence, and it demonstrated the order and process of all creation. To the Chinese, it was a symbol of immortality. A Taoist story tells of a special tree that grows one peach every three thousand years. Anyone lucky enough to eat one of the peaches will gain eternal life. Trees are so ingrained in mythology because they serve as strong symbols for death, growth, and rebirth.

These finishes are bonded to the metal at over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit so that the finish becomes part of the metal, and will stand the test of time with little or no maintenance.
Building A Legacy Through Heirloom Quality Doors
Building a family legacy has been going on since the beginning of time. Building heirloom furniture and doors intended to last forever is one of the primary ways we all have in achieving some small part of immortality. These cherished family items will touch our loved ones for many years to come through physical interactions as well as family photos . Many societies, including the Egyptians and Mayans, as well as European royalty and aristocracy have created and passed down heirlooms for thousands of years. More recently, the great artists and architects of the American Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century created such heirlooms.
In fact, if it were not for these artifacts, it would be impossible to know these people ever existed, how they were important to history. This is also the case in the 21st century within your own family. No matter if it’s a simple, hope chest with your personal message or name as a gift to a loved one, or an extravagant, fine art quality, master handcrafted, solid cedar, custom carved, arched Tree of Life door, these items will be important to the story of your family history long after we are gone.

The meticulous finish has been done in age old technique, using a 23-step hand rubbed process. We begin with fine hand sanding, and infused open grain hand applied stains. That puts the finish in the wood not just sprayed on it. This allows for the fine natural wood grains to show to perfection. There are then 20 additional steps requiring the application of wax, oils and lacquers with curing times between each process. This method is performed on all furniture and door wood surfaces inside and out. This tried and tested finish detail is required in the making of a one-of-a-kind, family heirloom quality product that meets world class investment quality standards that will stand the test of time.
