Shown Here: Portal Speak Easy Hand Carved

This portal door is hand cut directly out of your 3" or 4" thick solid door slab, ensuring perfect grain matching and a tight fit. There are no glued up sections on this portal door. It is as you see it hand carved from the solid door blade. the carved areas were left thicker when this door was joined up to make the door slab or blade. Then our master carvers removed this material with chisel and expertise to create this relief. No parts of this door are glued on with the exception of the internal shelf. However this shelf is pegged and doweled and tenon joined in to the solid structure of this door. This is a good example of the difference between true investment quality and semi- production doors or full production doors. This door will stand the test of time.

Included are two hand forged iron hinges and slide bolt lock all hand patina finished.
