When customers think of White River, what generally comes to mind are the ornamented long length mouldings or our detailed handcarvings. Many do not realize that White River has the ability to do high-end, custom doors as well. In fact, our Custom Shop has been building doors for over twenty-five years.
Detail from Volume 7 page 65
In the new Volume 7, we highlight these custom door capabilities. It was here that a customer saw the above custom door. They wanted us to replicate this look for a new set of doors for their project.
The carvings were integrated into the doors. We added custom curved mouldings, shaped to match the form of the carving.
The panels themselves have multiple levels of mouldings, built up into a beautiful detail. On the walnut door, the center of the panel is angled in a herringbone-like pattern.
