Craftsman Front Entrance: Handmade In The USA By Master Craftsmen
At ArtFactory.com 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 craftsman front entrance, handcrafted from solid cedar (as shown), we have carried that tradition of built to last craftsmanship into the 21st century.
The custom windows and sidelights can be customized in any style or size so that they will allow in just the right amount of light. For this craftsman front entrance we built three window panels into the main door with a matching sidelight panel on either side to create a symmetrical design. A true modern masterpiece inspired by historic design, and built with period correct methods and materials. We have built these in the same hand and craft that would have been used by Greene and Greene, Frank Lloyd Wright, or any of the other great craftsmen of the era. This type of product cannot be built overnight, or with low quality materials. That is why we use the highest quality, full length solid timber, and build it by hand, using the age old, tried and tested method of mortise and tenon joinery. This makes for a product that will stand the test of time.
Craftsman Front Entrance Custom Hardware Details
The custom craftsman front entrance, as pictured, features customer provided door handles as pictured. That's right, you can choose from any of our hundreds of styles of custom door handles or theme door pulls, or even provide your own. We make custom door hardware in any size, style or design, and to fit any application. All of our custom handles and hardware are hand hammered into shape by master blacksmiths over a coal fired forge. As with all of our custom doors, your hardware options are fully customizable. You can also choose to customize with any accent elements that you may choose to complete the traditional feel of this Arts and Crafts movement inspired door design.
Additionally, all of our hardware comes advance patinated with a hand applied, heat infused iron oxide patina. This type of finish won't crack, peel, or flake like paints and powder coats. Our door hardware is built to your specifications by our master blacksmiths using hand forged wrought iron. When we say hand forged, we mean with fire, hammer, and anvil. We never cast, drop forge, or use any fast or mass production process. This means you will receive a fine art quality piece of hardware that is uniquely yours, of investment quality, and built to stand the test of time. This includes our hand applied, iron oxide patina finishes. 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.
Build A Family Legacy Through Heirloom Doors
We specialize in building historically inspired designs that are built using the same techniques and materials as the originals from history. Building a family legacy through inherited heirlooms 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 a passed down legacy and heritage in this way for thousands of years.
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 custom craftsman front entrance, these items will be important to the story of your family history long after we are gone. It is our belief that when you buy a solid wood door from ArtFactory.com, that is will be the last door you ever have to buy for that entrance. Not only that, but this door is an investment that will add to the long term value of your property.

Craftsman Front Entrance Fine Art Finish
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. This process is the only way with little maintenance and the simple process of cleaning with oil will allow for a beautiful natural patina that will make this door more beautiful over time.
