In the realm of woodworking, few techniques stand out as prominently as the age-old art of mortice and tenon joinery. When coupled with the rich texture and durability of oak wood, this technique gives rise to doors that are not just functional barriers but also superb pieces of craftsmanship.

Wittswood specialise in Mortice and Tenon Doors, manufactured by David Witts from the finest European Oak.

What is a Mortice and Tenon Joint?

A Mortice and Tenon Joint is a simple yet remarkably effective method of joining two pieces of wood at a right angle. The tenon, a protruding tongue on one piece, fits snugly into a corresponding slot or hole called the mortice in the other piece. This creates a strong and durable bond that can withstand the test of time. Manufacturing doors using mortice and tenon joints requires a skilled joiner due to the nature of the expert measuring and tight cutting of the wood that is required. At Wittswood David Witts draws from his 50+ years of experience in woodworking manufacture to produce superior quality mortice and tenon doors.

What are the Advantages of Oak Mortice and Tenon Doors?

1. Strength and Durability

Mortice and Tenon joints are renowned as one of the strongest and most reliable woodwork joints. The interlocking nature of the joint creates a strong bond between the two pieces of wood, reducing any likelihood of movement between the joints.

The combination of sturdy oak wood and the time-tested mortice and tenon joint ensures that Wittswood’s doors can withstand the demands of daily use, making them a wise long-term investment for any home or business.

2. Customization Options

One of the most appealing aspects of oak mortice and tenon doors is the versatility they offer in terms of customization. At Wittswood all our doors are hand-manufactured by David Witts and his team, and they are able to tailor these doors to suit the specific aesthetic preferences and functional requirements of their customers.

3. Enhanced Insulation and Soundproofing

Oak wood possesses inherent insulating properties, making it an excellent choice for doors, especially in regions with fluctuating temperatures. Additionally, the solid construction of mortice and tenon doors provides superior soundproofing, helping to create a quieter and more peaceful indoor environment.

4. Timeless Aesthetic Appeal

Beyond their practical benefits, oak mortice and tenon doors exude a timeless elegance that can enhance the ambiance of any interior or exterior setting. The natural beauty of oak wood, coupled with the meticulous craftsmanship of the joinery, imparts a sense of refinement and sophistication to any space.
