Veneered Door manufacturers, Elite Door Solutions, provide a wide choice of soft and hardwood frame options, coupled with an attractive range of veneer finishes, which are all suitable for general usage. Select a frame of either softwood or hardwood, which can be factory primed for painting completion on site. Alternatively, you may wish to opt for a factory finished hardwood.
Our architraves are softwood or MDF, primed for site painting, factory painted or factory finished hardwood to match the frame. Our doors are manufactured with a hardwood crown cut veneer, offering a superior finish. All of the crown cut veneers in this range are book-matched to provide an attractive and carefully balanced pattern across the full door. To achieve this excellent finish, we take successive leaves of veneer and create a mirrored effect by reversing each alternative leaf and aligning corresponding edges.
To complete your door, we fit a fully factory finished matching hardwood over veneered or exposed lipping and a matching glazing bead to suit.

The log is cut in half, and the half log or flitch is then sliced straight across, parallel to a line through the centre of the log and tangential to the growth rings. This generally produces a veneer with a central area of strong figurative grain and a more linear effect at each edge.
The log is cut in quarters, and each quarter flitch is then straight sliced, approximately at right angles to the growth rings. This generally produces a veneer with a relatively uniform linear vertical grain.
The log is mounted centrally in a lathe and sliced around the circumference, following the annual growth rings; this gives a bold variegated grain, and enables very wide leaves to be produced. Continuous rotary slicing is also used for plywood and constructional veneers.
This traditional method of matching is achieved by taking successive leaves of veneer and reversing alternate leaves so as to bring corresponding opposite edges together in a mirrored effect. This produces a symmetrical balanced pattern of grain and figure.
Veneers of the same species, but not necessarily from the same log, are deliberately mixed to produce an overall random grain effect. Butt or end grain jointing may be introduced in some leaves to add to the planking effect.
Successive leaves are taken from the same stock or flitch of veneer and jointed without turning alternate leaves over as in book matching. This produces a repeat pattern which varies gradually across the panel. This method is usually most effective when straight grain veneers are used.
