We may be a motley crew of garage door technicians, installers, and builders, but we’re also artists. We love to craft exceptional and unique wood garage doors to fit a client’s home perfectly. Each handcrafted section of our custom garage door projects is made with care and attention to detail. Although it was hard to choose, we’ve put together a list of our top five favorites.
Custom garage door projects since 2005
When the Toney’s founded Central Oregon Garage Door over 15 years ago, they didn’t just want a business that installed and repaired garage doors (although we do that, too!). They also wanted a business that specialized in custom garage door projects to reflect Central Oregon’s beautiful surroundings. As a result, our custom projects utilize different types of wood for handcrafted frames and overlay pieces. And just like the Bend trees, no two doors are alike.
Here are our top five.
Project 1: Exotic brown
This custom wooden door used 1×4 T&G Thermory Wood overlaid with a custom stain in “Exotic Brown.” Thermory Wood is a USA-based sustainable wood company that produces its products to have tight seams, easy installation, and be extra durable without sacrificing the qualities of natural wood. We added vertical glass going down the right side that was ½” insulated satin-etched and tempered. The result was a modern yet inviting appearance.
Project 2: Tight knot cedar
Tight knot cedar gives a rustic appearance that’s customizable with different staining techniques. This residential door has a 1×6 T&G tight knot cedar rough side out face that complemented the wood on the rest of the home. In addition, we added a ½” stain etched insulated glass vertically down the left-hand side for a modern look that complemented the home’s other windows.
Project 3: Reclaimed barn
Our reclaimed barn door project is perhaps one of our most impressive customer garage door projects so far. The client came to us with wood removed from a barn in Idaho. The finished project was a 12’x14’ door with a 1’x8’ shiplap. Both the size and the unique wood make this door look like an upgraded, functional barn.
Project 4: Tetherow western red cedar
Western red cedar tends to be reddish or violet-brown, with streaks from pale yellow sapwood throughout. Its even texture makes this wood appear smooth and bright. This Tetherow home’s door featured a 1×6 T&G mixed grain clear cedar D and better western red cedar. The result was a door that uniquely contrasted with the home.
Project 5: Vertical mixed grain
This project featured a 1×4 mixed grain D and better clear cedar installed vertically on the face. In addition, we added ½” insulated satin-etched tempered glass sections vertically down the left-hand side. The result was a strikingly warm and modern door that perfectly complemented the rest of the home’s wood grain.
