Studded Oak Door

This door design is taken from an original door dating from the fourteenth century and has a unique raised peg design. The corners of the pegs are removed and a scribe pattern is scored into the door to mark out the peg locations. The scribing process is an element of period carpentry and was used traditionally pencils were not available. This is a design practice that can be removed from the surface though many of our customers prefer the heritage aspect of the scribing process and traditionally these marks would be left on the doors surface. The use of scribing is commonly applied as a decorative process and has lasted for many years on doors we have made without being lost or worn away. The deatailed images show the same door construction with a glazed panel inserted and covered with a handmade iron grille. In all other details this door is the same with or without the glazing.

Saxon Door

This door design is loosely based on an original Saxon door. It is a single thick plank with thick battens that are dovetail shaped and let into the back of the door to provide stability and lateral strength. It also has a traditional blacksmith made ‘S’ handle which is very simple very effective and built to last. The external face of this door is in a very exposed location and the image shows clearly how our untreated traditional oak ages under more exposed conditions. The second detailed image shows the dovetailed shape cross batens.

Cross Baten Door

This door design is a widely used design. It has been seen in many variations over a number centuries. It is most effective when used on an unheated porch’s due to its construction when heated to extremes on one side with central heating and the weather on the other side. It is a cross batten door which uses no mechanical fixings. It is comprised of vertical boards on the face and horizontal boards on the interior these are then pegged together using a traditional peg and wedge system. The images show the effects of exposure over a number of years on the external face of the door.

Sixteenth Century Oak Door.

This door design is from a sixteenth century oak door which we have adapted as the answer to modern requirements.  It has evolved around modern living and is perfect for draft free centrally heated homes. It offers a period look product with the stability and modern weather proofing systems of a twenty-first century door. This door is made up from fifteen panels and includes a glazed screen covered with handmade iron grilles. The door is also hinged with handmade externals strap hinges. This example sits within a shaped hand carved oak frame. The detail images show two separate examples of this door one of which  is photographed at the same property as our Saxon door and clearly shows the slower effects of weathering as this door is not as exposed  so has not silvered yet. The only minor difference with this version is that it is made with only twelve panels.

Allmans Heath Front Door

Most ventures start from humble beginnings and Jackbadger is no different. We've included this one for our own amusement and to show you where our love for oak craftsmanship started. That is to say this is Dom's front door which was made over thirty years ago and is still wind and water tight and looking good too. Also don't be fooled by the 1761 that's the mason in Dom having some fun. We are sure if you take a door from us it will stand the test of time just like Dom's front door. However we'd like to invite anyone with an interest in our products or anyone who shares our passion for traditional oak and stone to knock on this door and show you what a warm welcome you'll receive with a jackbadger oak door.
