The Abbey oak ledged door is a striking door due to the handcrafted scalloped ledges. Each one is individually hand made rather than being mass produced to give you an authentic period feel ideal in any cottage.
You can choose to have the Abbey door in a Prime or a Select Rustic Grade. We do not manufacture the Abbey door in the full rustic grade.
The door is available to be purchased with either a Bead & Butt or V Grooved profile. Bead & Butt profile adds some extra detail and would often have been used in larger properties reflecting the additional work that would have gone into making them at that time. V Grooved doors tend to give a subtle and clean look to the door and work particularly well in period cottages or barn conversions. With modern machining techniques we can produce either board in the same time, so we do not charge a premium for either profile. We prefer this as it leaves you free to choose which board you feel best suits your project.
These stylish oak doors are made by gluing and pinning the ledges before then hydraulically pressing them for a long lasting door.
Select Rustic Grade Oak
Select rustic ledged doors take all the great features of our rustic ledged doors doors but significantly upgrade the timber used. These are by far the most popular doors as they offer a great balance with enough knots and features to create a rustic cottage feel but without the large features found in our rustic doors. Where we find a knot that shows daylight, we will use filler, but this is generally a small area only.
Prime Grade Oak
With the prime grade, we take this one step further. Prime timber is carefully selected out to create a much cleaner looking door, which works well in a contemporary setting. We look for timber which has minimal knots which allows the visual focus to be on the grain pattern.
Prime oak ledged doors also work wonderfully well with some of our wide range of finishes.

We can also pre-finish your door for you if you prefer. If you select this option, we will hand apply the finish of your choice from our wide range. All of our finishes use a hardwax oil top coat, which creates a wonderful subtle finish to the oak whilst protecting the timber. We can finish your new Abbey door in a Traditional Clear hardwax oil or you can choose from one of our Shades finish or Aged oak finishes.
The Heritage shades range uses the latest finishes and techniques to create a variety of colours and styles to suit every home. Shades takes the natural beauty and variation of oak and tailors it to a number of highly individual styles so that there is a choice that will match whatever decor and look you are creating with your home project.
The Heritage Aged range use special stains that react with the tannins, this process can be prompted to happen straight away. We combine these reactive stains in a multi stage finishing process with various coloruing and highlighting effects before adding a top coat of hardwax oil and the results are truly stunning.
