This is an original and authentic product. It is genuine and the only one made by The-Wood Studio. It is not a replica, a rebuild or repair; it has been newly built by skilled artisan. No two doors are identical, thus making each one of a kind. Only authentic hand carving is performed, no routers or machine tools of any type are used.

Teakwood grade “A” (Tectona Grandis Linn)
Taengwood ‘Balau’ (Shorea Obtusa)

Note: The decks of the Titanic were covered in teak, and the wood is as good today as the day she sank on 1912.


Each door has a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody (CoC) certificate to guarantee the source was a sustainable plantation.


We keep all our wood in the oven for two (2) weeks to a moisture content of 10-12% followed by one (1) week of ‘resting’ to reabsorb moisture in the air to ~14%. The moisture level is being measured by electronic instruments.

Structural hardwood V-grooved minimizes the possibility of a joint separation. Permanently bonded with watertype-1 glue.


Mortise and tenon, glued with exterior Type-1 waterproof glue:

STILES: 4 ½” on face (standard)
BOTTOM RAIL: 4 ½” on face (standard)
TOP RAIL: 4 ½” on face (standard)

Because wood tends to warp when it becomes damp, we make vertical rails from two separate pieces of wood, then laminating them together lengthwise, with the grain running in opposite directions. The same is done with the stiles. Then when moisture penetrates the door, the laminated pieces tend to bow in opposite directions, negating the warping effect.


Molding around all lites and panels. Certain designs have recessed molding.


All panels are end sealed with under coat paint before the door is assembled to minimize shrinking and swelling.
