About Fine Woodworks & George PandolphAfter building doors for more than 30 years, I've developed a method that combines high quality workmanship of wood, glass and bronze to produce not just a door, but a piece of artwork. These doors finish the entrance to any home, church or business as no commercially stocked door can. I work closely with individuals to design an entryway that is unique and personal. I can also work with customers who have their own designs. Designs may include sidelights and transoms.
All doors are primarily constructed of Honduran mahogany or cherry because of their stability and weather resistance. Once properly fitted, these doors move very little compared to standard oak or fir doors. All of the doors are constructed with mortise and tenon joints instead of dowels. Marine glue is used for maximum strength.
Since the glasswork is done in our studio, it may be designed to suit any taste. The mahogany or cherry may be stained or left natural for a wide variation in hues. The finish of these doors is marine varnish for best appearance and protection.
