Unforgettable Custom Solid Wood Doors
Built with American Pride

USS Mispillions Oiler

This nautical theme solid wood entry door honors the naval history of the last WWII oiler. The USS Mispillion was commissioned in December of 1945 and remained in service of the United States Navy until 1994, working mainly in the Pacific Ocean. An oiler like the USS Mispillion was a supply ship, mostly performing refueling duties, but occasionally distributing food, supplies, and mail. The ship also participated in Korean War campaigns and the Vietnam War. At 67 years old, the USS Mispillion was sent to the scrap yard in March 2012 and had the longest working life of any Ashtabula-class oiler.

Entry Doors Custom Made When You Order - Never Manufactured

Our USS Mispillion Custom Entry Door is 4 thick with decorative diamond clavos and narrow sidelights that are complete with 1 thermal glass. Using a bronze working portal window, instead of a traditional speakeasy, this solid wood door captures an artistic nautical theme you and your family will love. The door handle is shaped to resemble a dock mooring cleat reminiscent of those used to anchor ships.

Own a front door that will provide satisfaction and a marvelous focal point for your home. We create our doors using the original craft, meaning no glue, no veneers, and no laminates - only solid wood, air dried, and joined using mortise and tenon.

Your hand crafted door is affordable and guaranteed forever - backed by over nine decades of our fine craftsmanship.
