This pair of 30″ x 96″ Common Segment Distressed Cypress Doors were designed to go on the home of a well known Montgomery, Alabama architect. He bought this Contemporary Home new and did a major remake to change it to a Tucson look before ever moving in. My understanding is that it was featured in Veranda Magazine several years ago.
This pair of doors have lion heads and other carvings applied to the top raised panel and the lower panel is carved. We used a wide casing with a backband instead of brick mold on the outside and a double keystone at the top with a lion head. The door joints where stiles and rails meet have wood pegs that were shaped on the ends and left sticking out about 1/2″. The doors were distressed by sandblasting and the double floating raised panels were allowed to check or split on one side to add to the look. The doors were finished using a patina that chemically reacts with the metals that were absorbed into the wood when it was a living tree. This process darkens the wood and the different metals gave the wood some green tones also adding to the Old World look. The hardware is Period Brass and if you look close you will see that the door bell button has a lion head.
