Don't just buy a door when you can own a custom grand entrance that has that "WOW factor" that you have been looking for, and will properly represent your personality and accomplishment to every guest who arrives at your home or business.
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 custom apple tree door, handcrafted 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. Our combination of the finest all natural materials, and master hand craftsmanship allow for us to offer a quality of product that is unsurpassed anywhere else, at any price. We can build a custom solid wood door for you in any wood type that you prefer. We never use particle board, laminates or veneers, when we say wood, we mean "The Genuine Article".
Sometimes you see something that is almost right, but not quite what you want. ArtFactory.com understands and will work with you to make your item perfect. This custom apple tree door is a result of customer and designer collaboration. The customer saw a door they almost liked (our custom winter tree door) and contacted us to see if we could make the changes they were hoping for. They worked with our team until we created what they were looking for, a hand forged wrought iron apple tree (with large iron apples) on a solid wood door. The apple tree overlay extends onto the sidelights, and apple tree branch door pulls to complete the design, thus making it an entrance befitting of Johnny Appleseed himself! Our master blacksmiths hand forged the wrought iron into the stylized tree and forged the extending pieces for the sidelights so they would match and give the illusion of the tree growing through into the sidelights. It is these types of details that make the difference between low quality mass production items, and a world class fine art entrance like this. This type of product cannot be build 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.
Each apple tree leaf has been individually hand hammered into shape by our master blacksmiths. This makes so that no two are alike, just as would be seen in nature. Every hardware product from artfactory.com is a unique work of fine art, all the way down to items such as hinges and ornamental iron clavos are individually created with hammer and anvil over a coal fired forge.
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 apple tree door, these items will be important to the story of your family history long after we are gone. At ArtFactory.com we will never understand the insanity of spending hard earned money on a product that is designed to end up in a landfill.
Our hand applied, natural stain wood finishes will never crack, flake, chip, or peel off like paints and powder coats. That is because our painstaking and time consuming, hand rubbed stain infusion process begins with fine hand sanding, and infused open grain hand applied stains. Furthermore, additional steps add natural oils, waxes, and lacquers with curing between each step. That puts the finish into the wood, not just sprayed or painted on top of the wood. This makes for a brilliantly colored finish that will stay beautiful for generations with little or no maintenance.
This is not only an investment quality door, it is an appreciable asset that will add to your financial net worth. In the eyes of your family, it will become a cherished heirloom and a priceless piece of immortality that will be tangible for generations. It will serve as a way to celebrate your life, and its direct effects on who they are and what your influence was on your family's history. True artifacts enhance and enrich all of our lives in a way that mass-produced merchandise never will, thus preserving the best of mankind and expressing our love for each other.

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.
