How I work and the Woods I use

At Mendocino Doors, I build almost entirely with solid woods and not veneer.
I prefer to get the client involved in the design process...... and hopefully fulfill the clients "dreams".

Generally, customers will give me some idea of what they want and I begin to put it to paper, and through the sharing of mutual ideas we come up with a design that works well.

Because this is a collaborative effort a couple of drawings are then sent to the customer. Often we make changes until the client sees the door of their dreams.

Then I give the client a firm price, once the drawings are approved. It is one of my greatest rewards, to have a customer see and appreciate the craftsmanship that is an intregal part of their their project.

ALL of the woods used in my doors are "Green Lumber", which comes from salvaged wood and sustainably harvested forests. This will help me to make doors that will last a hundred years from forests that will produce wood for doors even longer.

" If I don't take the time to do it right .......... When will I have the time to do it over ?? "


Please Note: ALL of our Redwood has come from downed logs and salvaged downed trees
