Introduction to Custom Door–Making

New Zealand's premier furniture making, woodworking & design school



Introduction to Custom Door–Making – Marine & Residential

In terms of impact and overall contribution to a structure, a door is often underestimated when considered solely as a means of entry to a dwelling or a boat. More than a simple entranceway, a door can symbolize authority, security and beauty, making a lasting first impression on a guest or visitor. When crafted with intent and executed properly, the door to a beautiful structure or vessel can shine as the crown jewel it’s meant to be.

The Introduction to Custom Door Making is an intensive, hands-on five day course that covers door structure, aesthetics, materials and techniques for building a custom door that can fit any conventional and non-conventional opening.

This course is not suitable for beginning woodworkers, therefore an Introduction to Woodworking course, or equivalent woodworking experience is recommended.
