Handcrafted Wood Front Entry Door With Glass And Wrought Iron

 This handcrafted solid wood front door with glass and wrought iron was designed to make a statement.

Custom made and handcrafted in Arizona from salvaged Pecan wood.

The door is 107″ tall and 87″ wide with a surround that is  over 8″ thick

This project was a special one, not only will it welcome the homeowners to their newly remodeled Scottsdale, Arizona home, it honors the families history with the materials used.  Pecan trees cut down on the family orchard fifteen years prior were sitting on the ground and  looking for a purpose.

We built the door using wood salvaged from the families farm. Designed to mix materials the front door with glass includes a large wrought iron grill and door hardware that was forged by hand.

Hand applied stain and wax highlights the rich patina and character of the aged pecan wood.
