Garage doors

These garage doors are made from Iroko and were constructed with from 2 1/2 inch timbers using traditional wedged tenons. The tongue and groove panels are reinforced with stainless steel tongues for added security. The aim was to make a bomb proof door unit that could handle the elements and last a life time. Using clear wood preservative alone the timber should mellow to a beautiful silver hue.. One of the biggest challenges was sourcing hinges big enough to take the substantial load.
