Materials We Use

All wood comes to The Wood Factory personally selected by Dean Arnold, evaluated for quality, clarity and grain. We work only in solid woods to ensure dimensional stability – no shrinking or warping. And frankly, solid wood feels better. It’s a difference you’ll appreciate every time you open or close a Wood Factory door. Typically we craft our Victorian Doors from Mahogany, White Oak or Ash. However, we’re happy to discuss more exotic alternatives for truly unique creations. Victorian “gingerbread” is milled from clear Cedar, a species renowned for durability in the elements. Clear Poplar for thinner, 3/4 inch thick pieces, such as brackets, is also available.
