Gorgeous, antique,  interior door salvaged from an old home in Northeastern PA. It has a core made of solid Douglas Fir and covered with 1/8"  thick chestnut veneers.

Please don't think that "veneer" means inferior quality. Unlike  the paper-thin veneers used on modern doors and furniture, these veneers  are 1/8" thick and provide strength and stability to the door.

Also note that chestnut is a rare and valuable wood; it’s not  commercially  available due to the blight introduced between 1900 & 1908, which  made  the North American chestnut trees virtually extinct by 1940.

The door has a  lovely, single, recessed (flat) panel on both sides and the door is completely stained and finished (no paint). It  looks like the previous owner intended on refinishing the door and sanded  everything but the panel and molding. The sanded portions are ready for primer  if you're planning on painting, but if your planning on refinishing, they'll  need a bit more sanding before you could apply stain.

Hardware: The door is not equipped with any hardware. However, we have a good selection of period hardware to outfit  it (check out our store).

* If you would like any of the hardware holes plugged with solid wood, please email us for a quote.

Condition: The door is in excellent condition. It  has  nicks and scratches, but no warp, rot, or serious breaks or cracks.

The only issue  the door has, is that some of the grain  is raised  on the upper portion of the panel on the exterior side (see last photo). Almost  all flat panels are made of plywood, which is basically thin layers of wood  glued together to form a sheet of wood. Sometimes these layers separate from  each other and sometimes the outer layers peel. In this case, a portion of one  of the outer layers peeled. These raised edges could be sanded down flat. It's  not a problem, but we like to be upfront about any abnormalities a door has,  just so there are no unpleasant surprises when you receive the door.

Refinish/Repaint: We could refinish, repaint, or partially or completely strip the doors to prepare  any of them for you to repaint or refinish. See  the last photos in this auction as an example of our work. Email  us with a small description of what you would like done, and we'll give you a  quote.

Swing: The door is set up to swing into  the room towards the right or outwardly towards the left. However, we can modify it to swing in  the opposite direction--email us for a quote.

Modification: We  could also modify this door to fit your opening or suite your needs. We could  make a frame, trim or add to the height or width, replace panels with glass,  reverse the swing, plug the hardware holes, etc. Email us with a small  description of what you would like done, and we'll give you a quote.
