All of our custom, handcrafted wood doors are designed by and built under the supervision of award winning artist H.J. Nick. A product is not signed by H.J. Nick until he has personally inspected and found it to meet all world class fine art criteria.

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 that 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.
