Wood Doors
Wood  provides the widest choice of style over any other material. They are available in flat, recessed and raised panel styles in a full range of wood species including exotics. A number of configurations have applied molding options to enhance detail and depth. Although typically stained there is a paint grade wood species for solid colour and glazed finishes. All wood doors are construct from 5 individual pieces except the flat panel type which is a wood veneered particle board panel.

Mortise & Tendon
This jointing method forms a vertical tongue & groove joint offering exceptional strength. For painted  wood is this is the preferred joint type, it is less prone to joint telegraphing compared with a miter joint.

Miter
This jointing method is a diagonal (45 degree) biscuit joint, though not quite as strong as the mortise and tendon it imparts a style of distinction, it is also the only jointing method available for non-flat stile profiles and certain inside-outside edge profiles.
