We recommend that you order a sample door to avoid confusion.
White Oak normally features a straight grain pattern and coarse to medium-coarse texture and naturally contains small, linear pores which makes it more ideal for staining instead of painting. The hardness of the wood makes it highly durable, which combined with its natural resistance to rot makes it an ideal choice for areas of the home with more moisture. It has coloring ranging from a wheat tone to a more greenish brown. Sapwood on the back is acceptable for doors in this material.
Rustic White Oak is chosen to include knots and character. Some are larger “live-knots” and some are darker colored knots. Sapwood is acceptable on the face.
Unlike most other wood species, hickory has a unique grain pattern and variety of color tones all of its own. Our standard hickory has a lot of character and is not selected for color.
Rustic Hickory allows for mineral streaking, larger-sized open knots, knots containing star cracks, and clusters of pin knots and can have stark variations in color between medium to dark heartwood and light to white colored sapwood. Certain parts of the door may contain all heartwood or all sapwood.
Known for its light gray to purple-brown color tone, Walnut will not display sapwood on the face, although some may be seen on the back. Its grain pattern can contain both straight and wavy sections as well and has a reduced allowance for small knots and pin knots.
Red oak is selected for color. Defects such as knots and splits are removed. Character, such as burl and pin knots are acceptable. Panel rips are arranged to form a reasonable blend of grain matching and color tones.
Cherry may contain some sapwood (white wood from the other section of the log). Grain and color are matched to form a reasonable blend. Exposure to light causes cherry to darken with age, revealing a deep reddish brown tone. Gum pockets are a natural characteristic of cherry.
Rustic cherry is a unique species that allows for many variations. Pitch, mineral, sapwood, heartwood and knots are common. Color variations may range from white in the sapwood area to a deep red in the heartwood area. Knot size, the percentage of pitch, sapwood, heartwood and number of knots are not allowed to be specified by the customer. All material will be structurally sound. We recommend that you order a sample door to avoid confusion.
