What do we offer?.

Our External door manufacturing service is versatile but here we will cover our most popular or catalogue items. We can fulfil your specific requirements. After working here for several years there are a few designs that we find ourselves making on a regular basis. Our most popular door design is the ‘Farmhouse’ door hung within a solid frame.

We can supply (Double Glazing) on your behalf

Yes, we do supply glass for your convenience only and all guarantees are between you and the supplier. We can order the double glazing on your behalf and generally, it takes 2 weeks from placing an order. We place the order once we have the Frames ready for glazing as to guarantee the sealed units fit correctly.

Internally Glazed?

Internally glazed wooden windows is a bad idea and so we don’t off this by choice. The reason is that if any moisture collects via the double glazed sealed unit it can drain outwards and not inwards towards your beloved Persian carpet! If you persist we will accommodate your wishes but this is not recommended

What is the best finish

Our Doors are supplied without paint or varnish but you have several options. Many of our clients have chosen to self apply an oil finish such as ‘Danish Oil’ (Tung Oil). Other practical finishes in the more obvious Paint or Varnished that require more effort but do offer good protection against the elements. If I was to make a choice I would choose an oil product as it is easy to apply and reapply.

The benefits of Oil for External Woodwork

The biggest turn_off for looking after your wood is the time it takes to prepare the surface prior to coating with varnish or paint. Oil is fast to apply and cutting in is not critical as it will wipe off furniture and glazing. The more oil that is applied over the first two years will soak in and petrify the wood preserving it for years.

  • Option 4 / The Oak French Door…starting From 999e

When we talk about French Doors we think about the double door leading to the garden and this iconic French door design is exactly what we are discussing here.

Traditionally French doors are mainly glass and lightly constructed this was fine for bygone times but today when we are obsessed with security it makes sense that the doors that Wallybois makes in it’s workshops are of a much heavier construction.

Since traditionally the French door is mainly glass and connects the inside with the outside living areas. These doors are a great option for those wanting to increase light levels in their home

Security for Doors

The term ‘High Security’ is a powerful argument like ‘Make Britain Great Again’ and clearly often ‘Fake News’ please excuse the pun but this is in many case in my opinion true. We are sold products with exaggerated promises of security and it is very eye-catching but frankly I believe a strong lock and a ‘STRONG DOOR’ is paramount.

I find UPVC and mainstream Brico diy stores type doors flimsy and that is why they have multiple locking and it is in my opinion not for additional security but to hold the door to the frame. If the door is solid that would not be necessary and if additional locking is important for you I suggest fitting additional dead locks: one to the top and one to the bottom!

Practically a good solid deep mortice lock with a Euro cylinder is preferable.

Not sure what pattern you are after?

We have some patterns that are common for us to make but you may have some different ideas or just want something a little different from our standard product range. If you are struggling to think of a suitable style for your house I recommend that you do some searches on Google images with basic search requests such as ‘French Door Styles’ and simply email the image link so we can provide a quote for that design.

In conclusion our doors are:

We build our doors with pride and with respect to our environment. This attitude to the construction of our doors is very important especially in times when our home is threatened with ‘Global Warming’

The guide prices you see here are a starting point and often not far from our final price quote.

All doors are made to measure and we only require measurements and style as supplied by yourselves.

Don't forget you may need some shutters to improve your door security.

Malcolm the Boat 'RIP'

 Woodworking for me is in my blood as a son of a traditional boatbuilder. My Father Malcolm Kett was highly skilled and inventive individual often referred to as ‘Malcolm The Boat’.

Marcus Kett and my Mortar!

Although I have spent a considerable portion of my life seeking further education and gaining qualifications in woodworking, electrical installations, bricklaying and to top it a degree in photography.

Yes, it is a medley of possible career choices but the one that I felt truly at home with was Woodworking. Woodworking has been my staple career choice that has given my family stability.

Why do I write these guides?

selfie workshop bio

Well that's Me

We started to write these guides to help our customers. The idea was to provide the information needed to install our made to measure wooden products that we sell on this website and directly to our local customers.

We soon received feedback from people abroad and interested readers not local to us. I like to help people and I am excited that fellow woodworkers or keen DIYers found guidance in my articles. I intend to carry on writing and producing youtube videos for the purpose of providing useful content. Please share our blog with your friends and anyone that could find interest in the magic of working with wood.

About Wallybois

wallybois mascot christmas

Wally is the middle one

We have lived and worked here in the Limousin Nouvelle Aquitaine since 2010, building window shutters and external doors. Our Volet manufacturing business is based at our home property as a ‘Cottage Industry’. We are a small business operating partly (60%) off the grid and try our best to practice our woodworking ethically.

How did we come up with the trading name 'Wallybois'? Well, it is simple really, my best buddy 'Wally' and the fact that 'Bois' is French for wood and we live in France.
