Bleached Oak Doors


Bleached Ash, Tempered Glass and Stainless Steel Mesh

made for Scott Murray, builder and remodeler

February 2014

We were recently commissioned to make 6 interior doors for a remodel by Austin builder, Scott Murray.  Scott’s clients wanted the doors and cabinets to be as light in color as possible, so a two-step bleaching process was approved on an ash sample.  The doors and moldings had to be constructed prior to going through this bleaching process.   Four of the final doors of bleached ash have a stainless steel mesh panel and two of the doors have the steel mesh panel and a pane of tempered glass to make the doors more noise and dust-proof.
