Burmese Rosewood = Latin Name "Pterocarpus Macrocarpus Kurz". Synonyms: Burmese rosewood, Burma padauk, Asian rosewood. Family: Magnoliopsida - Rosidae - Fabales - Leguminosae. Density 0.56 to 0.80. Application: furniture, door frames, cabinet-making, railways and bridges. Source: Burma, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia. Durability: Excellent. Rosewood is a hardwood bright red in color, deepening in time to a very deep red. Usually fairly dense and heavy, coarse textured, with prominent open pores. Density varies as a result of growing conditions, generally machines well regardless of density. Burma leads Asia in forest management and conservation with most of her original forest still in tact. Nearly all of the Burmese timbers are taken from large managed plantation areas still employing very traditional extraction methods such as elephant logging, ensuring the least disturbance to the surrounding flora and fauna. Burma is famous for it's variety of hardwoods. These are Padauk (Burmese Rosewood) Teak and Pyinkado just to name a few...




All wood in the oven for three (3) weeks to a moisture content of 10% followed by one (1) week of resting to reabsorb moisture in the air to ~12%. The moisture level is measured by electronic instruments.




Structural hardwood V-grooved minimizes the possibility of a joint separation. Permanently bonded with watertype-1 glue.




Mortise and tenon, glued with exterior Type-1 waterproof glue. Because wood tends to warp when it becomes damp, we make vertical rails from two separate pieces of wood, then laminating them together lengthwise, with the grain running in opposite directions. The same is done with the stiles. Then when moisture penetrates the door, the laminated pieces tend to bow in opposite directions, negating the warping effect.




Molding around lites and panels. Certain designs have recessed molding.




All panels are end sealed with under coat paint before the door is assembled to minimize shrinking and swelling.



Authentic hand carving by best Thailands craftsmen. No routers, no machine tools are used. Over 4,000 carving styles available for doors frames casing and lintels in many categories such as Americana, animals, architectural, Asian, business, Disney, dragons, mythology, nautical, wildlife and much more...
