32"x79.5"x1.75 Antique Solid Oak Door w/Window & Panel. Charming, antique, wooden door salvaged from the former, "Warwick State Training School for Boys, " in Orange County New York (see last photo). The facility opened in 1914. In 1933 FDR and his wife dedicated the facility towards the purpose of rehabilitating troubled youth in NYC by relocating them to the country, exposing them to living and working on a farm.
The door is over 100 years old. It has a solid oak core covered by 1/8 thick oak veneers.
It is stained and finished (not painted) on both sides. Please don't think that "veneer" means inferior quality. Unlike the paper-thin veneers used on modern doors and furniture, these veneers are 1/8 thick and provide strength and stability to the door.
Oak is a very dense wood and this door would've warped long ago if it weren't for its veneers. The door has a half-length window with Plexiglass and a raised panel below. Condition : The door is strong, sturdy, and in great condition. Since it was installed inside, it was never exposed to and worn down by the elements. Expect nicks and scratches, but no breaks, cracks, rot, warp, or any other serious issues.Most of the blemishes the door has. Will disappear after sanding, prior to refinishing or repainting, and whatever remains will be subtle, character marks. The glass is also in great shape with only light scratches. The only real flaw the door has is a missing piece of window molding (see photo). We could either make a matching piece and add it, or replace all 4 with a different kind of molding.
Set up to swing into a room towards the left or away towards the right. We could refinish, or partially or completely strip the door to prepare it for you to repaint or refinish.
We have numerous photos of doors that we've repaired and refinished over the years for you to see. Modification : Do you want to replace the glass with a wooden panel, screen/mesh, or something else? We could modify the door to fit your opening or suite your needs. We could make a frame, trim or add to the height or width, reverse the swing, plug the hardware holes, etc. 31 3/4 " x 79 1/2 " x 1 3/4.
