The beauty of oak for front doors

Oak has been revered as a timber species for many centuries. We love oak here at Acorn Bespoke Carpentry and Joinery; especially European oak, which is our favourite timber for bespoke front door and frame sets. We only use the finest prime grade, kiln dried, fully FSC® certified European oak. This hardwood is noted for its exceptional durability, attractive grain and outstanding insulation properties.

Bespoke oak front doors made to suit your home

Our joinery team can create your front door in any period style, including medieval, Tudor, Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco and many more. Or a sleek minimalist look could be a stunning feature on a more modern property. Any shape is possible too, whether curved, gothic or arched.

Classic cottage oak doors are increasingly popular in rural settings and often feature a square or diamond-shaped glass section set into full length panelling or a decorative cast iron grille with matching hinges and studs.

Glazed oak front doors for décor and light

We can incorporate glass as a feature to your oak front door and have a wide range of glazed panels for you to choose from. From clear glass, stained glass or other patterns to frosting for privacy and decoration.

The perfect finish for your custom-made external door

How your solid oak door is finished is really up to you - stained, oiled, waxed or painted.

For a traditional natural look that brings out the beauty of the grain, you could choose an oil or wax treatment. We prefer the leading Osmo brand for its unsurpassed protection. Or if you prefer a stain or tint, we recommend Sikkens for exterior wood coatings. External oak doors weather very well, and treated with the correct finishes, will withstand the extremes British weather for decades. 

External door furniture and fittings

You will be able to choose from a wide selection of the finest ironmongery in the UK ranging from period door knobs, handles and latches to contemporary handles and levers with insurance approved locks. To complete the look of your new door, you could add accessories such as letter plates, escutcheons and keyhole covers in solid brass, nickel, iron or enamel amongst others.

Made to measure oak door frames

Door frames can be made to measure in any shape or design, including those with glazed sidelights. All the joinery can be supplied as a 'door set', with the option to have your door pre-hung, or ready for hanging.

As well as front door and frame sets, Acorn Bespoke Carpentry and Joinery also create all kinds of other external oak doors including French doors, patio doors and stable doors.
