This door was built for CITY TV for the show Cityline. We were asked to give them a door for a show on decorating your home like a cottage, or bringing a tough of cottage style decor into your home.

We built is Shaker Style to keep it simple, and we added a brace in the middle. I wanted to do a two tone door, so it would be a little flashy for TV. The dark panels are made of red barn board that we have finished in our Ponderosa finish. Rails and stiles are natural hemlock reclaimed from barn flooring.

We used our 3” black flat track hardware.

Looks great. We were thinking of doing something like this. Excellent job!

Is the track hardware custom? If not, if you don’t mind, where did it come from?

The door looks great, but….
when I see a rustic piece I want to see rustic hardware too. I don’t want to see shiney lag bolts or screws. I want to see rust. I don’t want to see shiney new paint, I want to see layers of peeling paint, dings, and rust. I don’t want to see straight precision cuts on the edges, I want to see roughed edges and corners, and saw blade gouges. I don’t want to see the exposed raw wood on the edges, I want to see weathered edges.
But that is just my opinion. Sorry for being so critical. I love repurposing the barn wood.

Thanks Papajon! I appreciate your input for sure. I will say, however, that you are judging all of my work based on 6 pictures of only 1 door. I have a couple hundred photos of doors…but I can only post them one post at a time.

I build a lot of doors for people and I build according to their taste, not my own. I appreciate your logic regarding the hardware as well. Again…fabricated to each client. And I will say that the mixed medium market is quite hot, and a lot of people like the contrast to old, reclaimed wood combined with industrial steel. Stainless steel (a modern finish) pairs very well with reclaimed wood, and is VERY popular. Here in Canada anyway.

And as someone who builds for a living…I use wood to maximize yield. I maintain naturally aged edged where possible. That is a concrete rule in my shop. But if I need a 5” rail on a door and I’m ripping it out of a 10” reclaimed barn board…there is gonna be a cut edge coming in to play.

I go with the “majority rules” train of thought in what I do. I can’t afford not to. I actually let people lead me in informing me what they want. If that’s the majority, then it is cast in stone.

Thanks
