Wooden Doors For Home

Wooden doors have been a long-time favorite of homeowners. They come in so many options and are so affordable that not choosing them to meet your door needs just does not make that much sense.

Over the years internal wooden doors in Perth have like everything else lost some of their craftsmanship. They were largely made by hand by carpenters until the late nineteen-thirties when factories took over the manufacturing of them. Along the way, they lost some of their touches that were added by craftsmen.

Hollow Core

One of the most popular styles is the hollow core doors. These types of doors are used as interior doors because they are not that secure.

This door is made by taking two pieces of flat sheet wood, sometimes it is not actual wood but a wood product like plywood or pressboard ( a combination of glue and wood shavings) and the two large pieces are put together with a similar material frame.

One piece of wood is glued to one side and one piece of wood is glued to the other side. This process creates a door that does not have anything in between the two panels, hence the term hollow-core door. These are very lightweight and not very secure but they are found for the interior where security is not a concern.
