Building Wooden Doors with Canadian Wood Products

Doors & Windows

Wooden doors and windows are a major contributor to the upmarket look that many consumers want from a space; this is a very popular use for wood in India. Unlike wood used in interior applications, wood used for doors and windows needs to meet very demanding climatic conditions. Canadian wood species are ideal for solid wood and flush doors in addition to door frames and architraves. Intricately carved doors can be produced by hand or router using Canadian wood species.

Lower density values compared to most hardwoods make the following recommended species easy to face laminate, edge glue and/or finger join to make large or small cross sectional window and door elements.
