Hand Carved Wine Cellar Door: H.J. Nick Celebrates Grinling Gibbons
Award winning artist H.J. Nick of ArtFactory.com travels the world studying historic architecture in search of inspiration for our designs. Among the most prominent Baroque period wood carvers and sculptures in England was Grinling Gibbons. He lived in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, and although was born in the Netherlands, worked on some of England's most famous castles, including Windsor Castle, Hampton Court Palace, and St. Paul's Cathedral. He also ran a wood carving school, and was known for his heavily detailed floral carvings. Old English lore even says that "His carving was so fine that it was said a pot of carved flowers above his house in London would tremble from the motion of passing coaches." One of the techniques that he was known for teaching at his school was that of carving out the underside of each grape in a cluster. A technique that is demonstrated brilliantly on this hand carved wine cellar door. This is not a reproduction door. It is an original work of fine art built from all natural materials using the same hand and craft that would have been used by Gibbons over 400-years-ago.
The detailed wood carvings are the work of one of our master wood carver. All of our carvings are done by one master's hands, never by machine, gang carved, or using any other type of fast process. Carvings by one masters hands are especially relevant in the eyes of appraisers when certifying a piece as fine art. All of our custom wooden doors are built with all natural materials, and are handmade by master craftsmen. It is our belief that using all natural materials is especially relevant when creating fine art quality doors and furnishings. We build doors with sold, full length, naturally air dried timber that is hand hewn with mortise and tenon joined construction. This type of materials and craftsmanship makes for a door that provides maximum security and durability. Our doors are never built from particle board, veneers, plywood, or faux materials. When we say wood, we mean "The Genuine Article".

Hand Carved Wine Cellar Door Finish Details
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.
