Bead & Butt Pine Ledged Doors are a great option for cottages and barn conversions where you plan to paint or varnish the doors. Furthermore, we make Heritage pine ledged doors to the same high-quality standards as our oak ledged doors. We believe that they are by far the best quality pine ledge doors on the market.
Our specialist staff hand make all of our Bead & Butt Pine Doors in our factory in Sheffield. We use a Vths grade of redwood (pine) sourced exclusively from northern Scandinavian mills to ensure we use slower grown pine for better stability. We start with 95-115mm components to make our pine ledged doors depending on the timber available to us at the time of producing. Bead and Butt doors give a subtle and clean look which works particularly well in period cottages or barn conversions.
Every door is handmade and we thoroughly check these prior to despatch. Ledges are finger-jointed from long lengths of solid pine for the most stable door. We then glue, pin and hydraulically press on each ledge, just like on our oak doors. We do not simply staple the doors together as you will see on most mass-market pine ledged doors. This process makes our door by far the strongest and most durable available in the UK. Want this door painted? Check out our painted range!

All Heritage pine ledged doors are manufactured using Scandinavian Vths redwood. Timber is sourced from northern Swedish and Finnish mills, typically in the northern 3rd of the Gulf of Bothnia. This ensures that we are only using pine from these colder northern regions which makes for a slower grown, denser timber with smaller knots. This helps to keep the door more stable in use.
We typically use 5" wide raw material in our pine ledged doors, rather than the more common and cheaper 4" wide pine. This makes for a much better looking more robust door. We've designed and sold this door as a true interior door.
We also manufacture the door with 20mm thick verticals. Most cheaper doors on the market use 15mm thick verticals. Again this helps add to the robust nature of the door.

We do not currently offer a prefinishing option for pine doors.
The door is supplied with a smooth moulded finish. Where the ledges are pinned to the verticals there will be small nail holes that you may wish to fill. Pine is quite soft and often you can find there are small indentations from general handling. Again if you wish you can blend these with a sander. When finishing your door you will need to give the door an overall light sanding to key it for primer and paint.
You should also apply a knotting solution to knots. This prevents sap bleeding through your finish and stops discolouration. Knotting solution is generally clear in appearance so it can also be used under varnishes. The door is then ready for painting or varnishing
Doors are carefully packaged before being shipped with a national courier.
For smaller orders, each door is wrapped in a sturdy cardboard carton and shipped individually. Larger orders (typically 12-15 doors+ will be palletised)
