This handmade OX-Bow External Solid Oak Door has been crafted to an extremely high standard to give your home’s exterior a touch of real class. This cottage styled external door is capable of working with contemporary and more traditional properties alike. Period, country or listed properties complement the stunning design of the Oxbow extremely well.
The natural beauty of the oak complements a variety of brickwork colours; the subtle tones of the timber showcase the delicate graining whilst allowing the elaborate knots to take more of the attention. From the interior of your home looking out, you will gain a real sense of safety due to the thick, cross shaped panelling that supports the vertical boards of the door.
Many people are now turning to solid oak external doors for the additional security they can offer, and these doors are definitely thick enough for security locks to be added.
These doors are supplied without glazing; you will need to choose the glazing style that best matches the look you’re trying to achieve. This will only increase the dramatic impact this solid oak door will give to the front of your home.
This design of the Ox-Bow door and position of the ledges on the back allow you create a perfectly positioned aperture to house a letter box. Please see our guide on how to fit a letter box here
Please follow these treatment and maintenance instructions to preserve the beauty and strength of the wood.
External Doors are supplied unfinished. You will need to use a treatment suitable for external doors; we recommend the Impranol range for External doors; Click here For Impranol
We also supply an Oak Weatherbar to match the door, which will be required should the door be "open to the elements". Sold separately as not everyone will need one...ie if your door is situated within an enclosed porch. Click Here For Oak Weatherbars.
Our external doors must be treated before being hung, retreated every six months and kept dry at all times through the use of a canopy or similar. For full guidelines, please visit our External Door Protection Page.
Glazing not included.
Wooden Product Finishing
Our products are supplied fit for purpose and unfinished (unless a pre finished / treated door has been ordered). As oak is a natural product, sanding, polishing and colouring maybe required to achieve the perfect finish. If you have not ordered a pre-finished/treated door then we recommend that quality hardwax oils such as Treatex or Osmo Oils are used to seal and protect the goods and to validate your warranty. All of our doors must be treated before they are hung, not afterwards. It is vitally important not to miss areas where the door has been cut for hinges or any other door furniture as this would allow for moisture to get into the door and spread throughout it.
Modern oil finishes are extremely durable and hardwearing, they are very simple to apply and fast drying. Once your appropriate finish has been applied, generally very little maintenance is required. It is always advisable to cover any scratches that may occur over time. The benefit of using hardwax oil is that this is a very simple process of re-applying the finish to the affected area with a cloth.

Storage - Flat and Dry Only
As wood is a natural product it is important that it is stored correctly. We recommend that your new products are stored flat and in a dry area. We recommend that all packaging is kept on the products, or removed for inspection and then re applied for storage. Again as wood is a natural product it is susceptible to changes in each room's atmosphere and as such please be mindful of this and take care to avoid damp areas or newly plastered rooms etc.
This door must be fitted with a minimum of 3 hinges. This is due to the weight of the product, which can be attributed to the high grade materials used in the construction of the door. Choosing to ignore this requirement will void your warranty.

Morgan Says:The nicest door I have ever purchased.A superb design beautifully crafted, Ox-bow door, excellent quality solid oak. A cottage door that enhances the appearance of any home. My own favourite treatment to enhance the longevity of the door is one coat of Sadolin Classic followed by 2 coats of Sadolin Extra. This highlights the wonderful natural oak grain bringing out its beauty to full effect. Looks absolutely fabulous, couldn't be more pleased. The window recess was perfect and the exterior window frame fitted perfectly enabling the fitting of a double glazed unit very easy. Lou and the team couldn't have been more helpful and delivered on the day requested. Arrived carefully packaged which was much appreciated.
