Frames are primed or factory finished.
Architraves are either softwood or MDF, primed for site painting or factory painted or factory finished hardwood to match the frame.
We can offer any veneer in crown cut or quarter cut with the exception of Koto and Birch which are available in Quarter cut only.
Crown cut veneers are book-matched to provide an attractive and carefully balanced pattern across the width of the door. This is achieved by taking successive leaves of veneer and reversing each alternative leaf so as to bring corresponding opposite edges together in a mirrored effect.
The log is sliced along its length, resulting in a figured appearance. This generally produces a veneer with a central area of strong figurative grain.
The log is cut along its length to form four separate quarter logs. These are then sliced at 90 degrees to the growth rings to provide the flitches which give a striped or planked appearance when laid across the door.
