Custom Astronomy Theme Door: Crescent Moon Window & Rocket Handle
Celebrate the space age and one of America's greatest achievements, the moon landing, with this modern front door, built with old world quality and craft. 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 the custom astronomy theme door, handcrafted from solid, full length timber, we have carried that tradition of built to last craftsmanship into the 21st century. A true modern masterpiece inspired by contemporary design, and built with tried and tested, old world methods and materials.
This type of product cannot be build overnight, or with low quality materials. That is why we use the highest quality, genuine solid wood, and built it by hand, using the age old, tried and tested method of mortise and tenon joinery. This type materials and construction make for a product that will stand the test of time. Furthermore, the hand cut crescent moon glass window is constructed from thick, tempered glass for additional security and energy efficiency. This door glass is custom scaled and engineered to allow just the right amount of light into your home. This door is pictured with a flat top, but like any of our designs, can be built with a semi or full arched top. 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.

History Of Man Landing On The Moon
A Moon landing is the arrival of a spacecraft on the surface of the Moon. This includes both crewed and robotic missions. The first human-made object to touch the Moon was the Soviet Union's Luna 2, on 13 September 1959.
The United States' Apollo 11 was the first crewed mission to land on the Moon, on 20 July 1969. There were six crewed U.S. landings between 1969 and 1972, and numerous uncrewed landings, with no soft landings happening between 22 August 1976 and 14 December 2013. The United States is the only country to have successfully conducted crewed missions to the Moon, with the last departing the lunar surface in December 1972.
