Half Lite Wooden Door: With Custom Hand Forged Iron Security Grill

door in jamb in open position

We handcrafted all of our solid wood doors from genuine, full length timber. We never use any type of faux wood, laminates, or veneers because fine art is never made with low quality materials.

This fine art quality, custom half lite wooden door is handmade in the U.S.A. from all natural, solid, full length timber. This custom, 1/2 lite glass panel entrance door, as pictured, has been customized with a decorative, blacksmith hand forged, hinged, security grill. In other words that fine art quality custom grill locks separately, and swings open for easy cleaning of the glass. It is attention to details like this that make the difference between our products, and fast process, mass produced products. The lower half of the door features a classic vertical plank, solid wood design with wrought iron clavos accents to enhance the door's rustic look. The gothic inspired iron grill is a nod to the architecture from that era. Award winning artist H.J. Nick designs all of our custom doors, and gets much of his inspiration from these great, centuries old structures.

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. That is why we build our historically inspired doors using the correct techniques and materials that were used to build the originals. This type of craftsmanship has proven throughout history to create a quality of door that will stand the test of time. All of our wood products are built using hand hewn, mortise and tenon joinery. This type of craftsmanship allows for a level of durability that will never be found in today's glued together, faux wood doors. In other words, this is not a reproduction quality product, when you buy a castle or cathedral door from ArtFactory.com, you are receiving the genuine article.

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.
