Custom wood cellar doors should go through a special process designed to strengthen its insulating properties. A new technology, which only a few manufacturers offer, makes use of the Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL). LVL is a type of engineered wood (made from small diameter trees) where multiple layers of thin wood are bonded together with the use of adhesives. This technology is better compared to traditional technology because of its essential features such as durability, uniformity, and ability to resist warping and shrinkage due to changing climate conditions.
Materials and Styles for Stunning Wine Cellar Doors. Cellar doors can be made of wood, glass or wrought iron. There are many customization options which include: standard doors, carved wood doors, combination of carved wood and etched glass, wrought iron grills attached to a wood door frame with bevelled glass. Wooden Cellar doors can be plain or carved. Hand carved cellar doors are commonly chosen by wine enthusiasts because they make lasting first impressions and set your door apart from the ordinary. Free your imagination, have a specific idea or theme in mind and incorporate it in your door carvings. The theme could be grapevines, leaves, scenes related to wine industry or any theme you would like to be displayed in your custom entry door.
When using glass, keep in mind to use multi-paned glass, or insulated glass, to take advantage of its anti-condensation properties. Insulated glass prevents condensation by utilizing a gas-filled layer in between the panes. This sealed-in gas prevents the cold inner glass from making contact with the normally warm outer air, which causes condensation. Furthermore, multi-paned glass allows you to make use of stained glass which is basically just a single pane glass. The empty layers give you more space for the type of designs you want on your custom wine cellar door.
But you can't do custom hand carving on engineered wood so you can take another step and add another layer of solid wood veneer. You can choose from a variety of wood species for the veneer. Aside from lending its essence to the door, this relatively thick veneer allows custom carvings on the wood. This solid-engineered wood mixture and the use of Mortise and Tenon joints give your custom wine cellar doors the durable strength of engineered wood, and the appeal of a hand carved wine cellar door.
