This morning I saw a program on "This Old House," where the exterior door was kept. It was refinished by a thin layer of wood veneer added to the old door. So you don't have to worry if the door will fit. It actually looked great.

Yes Yvonne here is the link I was going to go there once to ask about refinishing some old pieces I had but never made it. Interesting web site.

Looks like they have tons of double entry doors kind of pricey but beautiful looking. It would be cool if MDM could gets doors that were from a JC house. I wonder if they keep a history of where the doors are from.

Have you considered architectural salvage doors? Salvage Angel in Asbury has a huge selection of doors and the prices aren't that bad. I found a large pocket door, about 70 x 90 inches, with original stamped glass for about $500. Might be worth looking into. The salvage places I found around the city were double to triple the price.

I have a townhouse that I am looking to replicate the typical double doors that you see on a brownstone. The original oak double doors that were on the place when I bought it years ago were not salvageable. The building is not in a historic district so I can be flexible with the materials to keep the costs from getting too insane.

Anyone here recommend a outfit that makes the doors? I found a few online with some based out of Brooklyn. Curious if anyone has experience with one in particular.
