Bespoke Doors by Jonathan Elwell


We do not insist you protect our products with canopies, overhangs or porches. As long as you are prepared to maintain solid wood there is no reason why it cannot out perform many man made materials.

European Oak, Iroko, Idigbo and Sapele are all woods which can be stained. We prefer to send our products out full factory finished but we also offer a base coat only option (further finish would need applying) and a Sikkens base coat and top coat option. Goods can be supplied without finish but they MUST be finished immediately after leaving us otherwise your warranty will be void.

This includes one coat of stain base coat, end grain sealer and two coats of Teknos topcoat
Full factory finishing is very popular as the products then need little attention. However we would advise to recoat translucent stained products after six months or when it becomes necessary. Many factors can influence the durability of the finish, exposure conditions vary significantly in the U.K. Click here to view the Teknos maintenance guidelines

If you decide not to go for a Full Factory finish Sikkens is the stain we use and recommend for external products. Sikkens is available in a range of colours the most popular we have found is F4.30.50 T (a light oak shade) we can also use Ebony or Walnut for a darker finish.

F4.30.50 T is part of the Cetol Design Classic Collection, a truly inspirational selection of colours. This functional and aesthetic range of woodstains gives professional users the opportunity to be highly creative and to bring a modern look and feel to the project

On all our Oak products we apply a coat of Osmo Aqua WR before the components are put together this ensures the product is fully coated in every area. Osmo WR is a colourless liquid which soaks into the timber and prevents splitting and warping and also cuts down on the black mildew that can occur when Oak gets very wet.
