Traditional ‘Ledge & Brace’ Doors
Traditional ‘Ledge & Brace’ doors for internal use are available in Oak or Pine.
Made using 22mm thick ‘Tongue &Grooved’ boards. These doors can be made ledge only or ledge and brace.
Hanging these doors is simple and can be hung in an existing frame or within a door lining supplied by us.
Unless requested we use smooth planed boards but if your looking for a more bespoke option such as sanded sawn boards or the traditional tapered boards include that with your Devis / Quote request. We are open to any design suggestions and will try to accommodate your ideas.
We make these doors with human input and take every care that they are constructed to a high standard. It is important to us that we keep our excellent reputation for quality versus value. Every board is checked for trueness and moisture content before we position within the new door being made. We construct using discreet mechanical fixings and waterproof powdered resin glues as used in boat-building but we also allow for expansion and contraction.

When you order from us you can be sure of getting the best value and an ethical product compared with our competition.
Please note: we do understand that everybody’s requirements to style etc may not be the same. We are happy to discuss in detail your personal preferences, simply send us a message and we will do our best.
The workshops at Wallybois are mainly powered using solar and the Oak lumber is locally sourced in the Limousin this cuts down on our environmental transport and carbon impact. Check out the page Ecologically constructed for more information.
