Craftsman 3-Panel (3-11)
1-3/8″ Thick – Interior Door
CRAFTSMAN 3-PANEL (3-11), Interior Door, 1-3/8” Thick
Craftsman style doors are often found in Bungalow style homes, widely popular in the U.S. in the early 1900s. Our Craftsman doors (also called “Shaker” or “Arts & Crafts” doors), consist of a stile and rail frame, with simple square “sticking” (corner edges), and flat panels. Custom Craftsman doors can include multi-panel wood designs and designs with added glass (lites), shelfs and corbels. Visit www.sunmountaindoor.com to view our custom Craftsman style doors.
This 1-3/8” thick 3-panel (3-11 pattern) door is made at our northern Colorado factory, near Fort Collins. All of our 1-3/8” doors are for Interior applications only—not for use as Exterior or “entry” doors. We source the Knotty Alder lumber used for this door from the northwestern U.S., only from responsibly managed forests.
Key elements of this door include:
This door includes an industry leading Warranty, with one-year limited coverage on unfinished (raw) doors, and five-year limited coverage on factory pre-finished doors. Please note that this extended five-year warranty applies only to the construction of the door, and not the factory pre-finish itself.
Engineered Stiles & Rails
Stiles and rails are the vertical and horizontal “frame” components respectively of the door. Our stiles and rails are engineered to resist bowing and warping. We use industry leading 1/8” thick veneers, with superior quality TimberStrand® Laminated Strand Lumber (LSL) core material.
Panels are the large, wider boards used to fill the space between the stiles and rails. Panels are manufactured with small width boards, edge glued to create the larger width panel. Our panels are 1/2” thick solid wood—much higher quality than pressboard panels with thin veneers, or hollow core panels found on lower quality imported doors. Individual boards are random widths, glued in alternating grain patterns to balance the panel and reduce the natural tendency of the wood to warp or cup.
Bore & Dowel Construction
Our doors are assembled with bore and dowel construction. We use industry leading 1/2” diameter dowels. Stiles and rails are bored, glued and then doweled for optimum strength and stability. Panels fit into grooves in the stile and rail components, and “float” on rubber spacers to allow for minor expansion and shrinking of the wood with the natural moisture and environmental changes of the home.
Panel & Sticking Profile
“Sticking” is the decorative trim wood placed between the stiles and rails and the panels of the door. This Craftsman door features a square sticking profile and a flat panel profile as shown below.
