A Graphic Journey through the construction of an interior door for a contemporary home. My house, like the majority of houses built in the US over the last 50 or so years, has cheapo hollow core interior doors. (this particular house was on such a tight budget that even one of the exterior doors is hollow core). My son and I have been working room by room to upgrade the lighting, electrical and insulation, I guess the insulation cannot be considered an upgrade, since the house had none. Howdens Joinery hardwood internal doors are available in a varied choice of glazed and panelled designs including Dordogne and 4 and 6 panel oak doors. Our hardwood doors have an engineered construction and several fire door versions are available in different designs.
A door is a moving structure used to block off, and allow access to, an entrance to or within an enclosed space, such as a building or vehicle. Panel doors, also called stile and rail doors, are built with frame and panel construction. Whole-life costs of internal doors are related to the form of construction and the finish. Modern homes tend to have standard-size joinery and most internal doors are the same size. Internal doors are usually much lighter than external doors, this is because of their thickness and the material and method used in their construction.
Internal doors play such a huge role in the look and feel of your home that it’s surprising that so many people get it wrong.

Choosing Internal Doors
I had a set of custom doors to build from scratch and boy was the timing right. Festool picked me as one of the few carpenters to get a Domino XL for user evaluation. And I took full advantage of the opportunity, one that I felt was both a privilege and a responsibility.
