The popularity of Oak Internal Doors has increased massively over the last five or six years. American white oak has become more freely available and has therefore become much cheaper for the manufacturers to buy. One of the many advantages of using Oak in the manufacture of Oak internal doors is that American White Oak is very versatile and the colour match is much better than hardwoods that have been used over the last twenty years or so. That is to say all the panel and rails match each other and are well suited to using clear or very light stain or varnish on them. While stain or varnish can extenuate the mismatching shades in other hardwoods, oak internal doors will look fantastic. Many people do not realize that oak internal doors are not solid oak but are veneered / engineered. Oak internal doors have been engineered for the last ten to fifteen years. One of the advantages of this is that engineered doors are much more stable than one piece doors and very rarely even warp or twist. Manufacturing oak internal doors this way is much kinder to the environment as mismatching hardwood can be used on the inside of the door. The matching oak can then be used on the outside of the door. Of course, constructing oak internal doors this way means they are much cheaper to buy. For example a veneered oak internal door will cost you approximately one hundred and fifty pounds will cost approximately eight hundred to a thousand pounds if the door was one made by a joinery company in the UK. The majority of joints used in the production of Oak Internal Doors are called dowelled joints. Dowelled joints, as the name suggests, use dowels, normally three, in each joint. They are secured with wood glue that is actually up to ten times stronger than wood itself.
