Old doors, are stripped in a caustic solution. The residue is then removed by pressure washing. The items are left to dry slowly and naturally to avoid shrinking, then placed into a dehumidified storage area until the drying process is complete.

Next, any repairs can be undertaken. Holes or damaged areas are replaced with matching wood and the piece is then sanded ready to receive the finish which is either wax or lacquer as preferred.
