At Hoffmeyers, we build many different types of real, solid wood doors for interior or exterior applications. If you have an older home and are missing a door maybe we can help you find that match you seemed was impossible to obtain. Or perhaps you are building a new home and want somthing that stands out from the cookie cuter embossed designs made from masonite . Shown below are just a few interesting solid wood interior/exterior doors manufactured by Hoffmeyer's Mill. One man handcrafts each door using the same mortise and tenon joinery machines that have been producing fine millwork at this location sice 1906.
Above shows you an exterior 1 3/4" thick 2 round top lite "tombstone" door with a matching 1 3/8" thick combination storm door. The storm door has an open one lite glass insert that will show off the round topped door behind with a 2 lite screen. Both of the above doors are milled in Ontario White Pine. Other woods can be used to suit your own application..
Below we have another variation only this example shows a heavy bolection panel moulding that is also applied to stop in the glass. Greater time is spent in this case as the moulding is turned on a lathe and then cut in two, and then the straight moulding is fabricated to match what was turned. Lots of craftmanship here!
The above image was given to us as a concept for the entry of a home in Michigan. Below you can see the Pine door and frame unit derived from this picture. The fir plywood on the corners of the frame are installed to keep the frame square prior to installation. The picture at right shows us the finished product. Thank you Marcia!
Above you can see a 2" thick African Mahogany entry for a new home in Mississauga, Ontario. Below you can see the matching side entry door. Very solid and very heavy doors.
The doors are fit ot their frames but not hung. This is to be done onsite by a finish carpenter. The solid paenl door on its own is upwards of 200 pounds! Another closeup shot below of the raised panel detail.
Custom 4 raised panel door with extra panel moulding. Below is a closer look at the detail achieved only from handcrafted doors milled by one pair of hands. This is the kind of work done at Hoffmeyer's Mill.
