These beautiful 34mm internal solid oak ledged doors are made from fingerjointed French oak.

These are an ideal solution if you are looking for a solid heavyweight oak door but you intend to paint the door.  We take lengths of solid oak that are too short for our normal production and fingerjoint them together to create a very stable but cost effective door.

We assemble the door with 14mm thick verticals and 20mm thick ledges for a 34mm overall door.

Description

Finger Jointed Oak Ledged Door

What is a Finger Joint?

Finger Jointed Ledged Doors explained here. These doors contain a finger joint which is also known as a comb joint.  This type of joint is classed as a woodworking joint – we make this by cutting a set of interlocking profiles in two pieces of wood and glue them. The cross-section of the joint resembles the interlocking of fingers between two hands, hence the name “finger joint”

The oak doors are made from lengths of timber which are too short to use on normal ledged doors.  The pieces join together which are exceptionally strong, by using multiple pieces of oak actually creates a more stable door.

Finger jointed doors explained in more detail.

Finger Jointed Ledged Doors are ideal for period properties. They bring the charm and quality feel of solid oak into your home at realistic prices.   The doors are a great option where you are looking to paint the door, but you still want to feel a heavy oak door.

All of our doors are handmade in our factory in Sheffield using predominantly French oak.  We deal directly with sawmills in Southern Normandy, Loire Valley, and Bourgogne areas of France. This ensures we get beautiful quality oak at good prices.  All the oak is correctly seasoned and kiln dried to be displayed inside the home.

We hand make each door and check them prior to dispatch. Our professional staff glue, pin, and then hydraulically press the ledges on to ensure a proper fit. This process is unique to Heritage and makes our door by far the strongest and most durable available in the UK.

PLEASE NOTE:  The room set images show solid oak doors, please refer to the timber vertical images to see how the timber will look.

Timber Grades

Oak is available in a large range of grades. At Heritage we offer our oak ledged doors in 3 grades, which determines how much character and knots you will receive in your door. Have a browse through the information below and the various grade images to get a feel for what each of the grades can look like. Remember that each grade covers a band of and so there will be variations between doors. However the following information will give you a good guide as to how your new V Groove Oak Ledged door will look like.

Rustic Grade Oak

Rustic oak doors are designed to match the style of timber that would have been used in period to make this style of door. We keep all of the character that you will find in rustic oak, from colour variation to minor splits and large knots. Anything that is a larger feature we will fill for you, however by default we leave the door unfilled to retain all of its natural charm. This timber grade will not be for everyone, but if you are looking for something as original as it gets then this is the one to choose

Note: On rustic doors we manufacture the ledges using finger jointed lengths of solid oak. This helps to produce good quality ledges in the most cost effective manner. There will be some colour variation between some of the pieces but these can be hidden very effectively by using a coloured finish.

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.

Standard and Custom Sizes

These oak doors are available in the following sizes: -

2'0'' x 6'6''/610mm x 1981mm

2'3'' x 6'6''/686mm x 1981mm

2'6'' x 6'6''/762mm x 1981mm

2'9'' x 6'6''/838mm x 1981mm

All the doors are made to a standard 34mm thick.

Options

Hardware

We also offer our own superb ironmongery sets, made in hand forged steel and available in either an antiqued beeswax or a pewter finish.

Each kit contains 2 x 18" (450mm) strap hinges, specially designed with strengthened hinge assemblies to take the weight of solid oak doors without sagging. The kit also contains a substantial thumblatch complete with locking pin. Finally a set of matching screws is also supplied.

With each ironmongery set we will also supply a 20mm thick solid oak lock block. This is useful in some installations where you need to install the thumblatch flush with the ledges.

Bracing Pack

Selecting a bracing pack adds the diagonal braces to your door. In the past these were necessary to stop the door from sagging over time, but with modern manufacturing techniques this is no longer the case. Braces are now purely an aethetic choice.

Braces are available as either a loose bracing pack for you to fit yourself, or we can install them for you. If you elect for us to install them you can let us know which orientation you would like them fitted in, left side or right side to the top.

Glass Opening

We can also manufacture your door with a glazing opening. Selecting this option will mean we let in an opening to the door, and supply the door with oak glazing bead. We do not supply the glass.

If you would like a particular size glass opening then please let us know, otherwise we will make the opening to the full width of the inner boards

Finishing

We do not currently offer a finishing service for this product.We recommend only purchasing this door if you are planning to paint or stain in a dark colour due to the finger joints.
