Mahogany Doors: Thinking of a grand statement to grace the entrance of your home? A mahogany door from Doors For Builders may be the right choice! Ever since the 18th century when Sir Walter Raleigh had a mahogany table made for Queen Elizabeth I, the allure of mahogany has grown. Mahogany varies from yellowish, reddish, pinkish, or salmon colored when freshly cut, to a deep rich red, to reddish brown as the wood matures with age. Mahogany is fine to medium texture, with uniform to interlocking grain, ranging from straight to wavy or curly. Irregularities in the grain often produce highly attractive figures such as fiddleback or mottle.

Mahogany polishes to a high luster, with excellent working and finishing characteristics. It responds well to hand and machine tools, has good nailing and screwing properties, and turns and carves superbly. Mahogany is regarded by many as the world's premier wood for fine cabinetry, high-class furniture, and mahogany front doors. Some characteristics that make mahogany perfect for a grand home entryway are:

  • Resistant to Rot, Decay, and Infestation. 

  • Seasons/weathers well with minimal shrinkage and checking.

  • In Malaysian government tests, this wood was found to last
    up to 30 years when stakes of Mahogany were driven into the ground.

  • When left untreated it weathers to a soft grey.

Knotty Alder Doors: Looking for an entryway with a distinct personality to welcome visitors to your home? A knotty alder door from Doors For Builders is a great place to start. Alder has a fine close-grained structure and is easily stained and finished. Part of the popularity of Alder is due to the unusually wide range of grades that are available; with knotty alder giving rise to unique visible surfaces and unusual structural components. 

The cream color of newly cut Alder turns a pink orange whilst working on it. This ‘bleeding’; causes the more mature wood to be beautifully tinted and veined. It was therefore much sought after by furniture makers. In the Highlands of Scotland, it was used for making chairs and cabinets and thus came to be known as ‘Scottish mahogany”. English wood workers were especially fond of the roots and knots of Alder wood and are believed to have been the first to fabricate knotty alder doors. The ancient Roman writer, Virgil, claims that the first boats were made of Alder wood. The timber can resist decay in a wet environment almost indefinitely. Venice floats partly on the strength of Alder trees.
