Our Shaker Z-frame swinging door is a classic design with a rustic twist. If you're looking to add just a touch of farmhouse charm to your space, look no further: this solid wood, hand-made door is just what you need. Available in over twenty wood species and three panel styles.
The Shaker Z Panel has just a touch of rustic flair. The diagonal brace creates a Z-shape with the top and bottom rails, reminiscent of old farmhouse swinging doors. For a more traditional look, choose vertical or horizontal tongue-and-groove panels. Or for a more contemporary feeling, opt for the flat panel styling. This door is available in over twenty wood species, so you can find the one that's just right for your space. Whatever species you choose, your door is made from solid wood—no veneers here! We also craft the door jamb in the same wood species as the door, for a luxurious and coordinated final look. Customer favorite wood species for this door design include:
Of course, premium materials are just one half of the equation. The other half is expert craftsmanship. Skilled artisans cut, assemble, and finish our doors by hand. That's why our doors have an artisanal quality that’s hard to come by in a mass-produced world. We use traditional techniques like mortise and tenon joinery for a door that’s just as strong as it is beautiful.
We think this door is ideal for:
This interior swinging door is suitable for any application and adds subtle visual interest to any space in your home, plus the solid wood longevity you can count on for years to come.
Skilled artisans make all our doors by hand onsite in Gig Harbor, a small seaport town on the Puget Sound in Washington State.

Door handing is determined from the outside of a room. If the hinges are on the left side, the door has left handing. If the door swings into the room (away from you, standing outside the room), it is a left-hand inswing door. If it swings toward you, out of the room, it is a left-hand outswing door. The opposite is true of right hand doors – the hinges will be on the right side. If the door swings into the room (away from you), it is a right-hand inswing door. If it swings toward you, out of the room, it is a right-hand outswing door.
In cases where there isn’t a clear “inside” or “outside” to determine handing (i.e., the door connects two rooms), open the door and stand with your back against the hinges. If the door is on your left, it’s a left-handed door. If the door is on your right, it’s right-handed. If you are still unsure, don't worry! We'll be happy to help you make sure you select the right handing. Just give us a call at 1-800-694-5977, or click the chat bubble on the right to chat with one of our customer care agents!
Standard interior swinging door slabs are typically 36” x 80.” But widths between 28" and 32" are also common. If your interior door is taller than 80 inches or wider than 36 inches, the thickness should be 1 ¾ inches. Commercial swinging doors are subject to ADA compliance and may require different dimensions.
For pre-hung doors, you will need to know the rough opening measurement. To calculate the rough opening, measure the width from the inside of the side studs at the top, bottom, and middle of the door frame. Use the smallest of the three measurements, if any variance occurs. Next, measure the height from the floor to the header on the left, center, and right. Again, you will use the smallest of these three measurements, if any variance occurs. Measure the thickness of the wall by using the smallest measurement of the exposed drywall.
For special applications, please call our customer care team at 1-800-694-5977 to make sure you choose the correct size.
We highly recommend adding a clear finish to your door to protect it and make sure that it is eligible to be covered by our warranty. A clear finish not only protects your door, it also enhances its beauty while preserving its texture. Clear finish brings out the color and detail of the wood grain.
We offer the following finish options:
White Primer: Added to Paint Grade Hardwood. For this option, we use only high-quality hardwoods like European Beech or Red Grandis. These species provide a smooth surface for paint.
Clear Satin EuroFinish by Osmo: A premium hand-rubbed hardwax oil that conditions, seals, and finishes the wood.
Oil Stain EuroFinish by Osmo: A premium hand-rubbed hardwax oil that stains, seals, and finishes the wood.
Check out our Wood Species Visualizer below to compare the raw wood with finished wood and explore our wood species options. Slide the toggle to the left for unfinished wood, and slide the toggle to the right for wood finished with Clear Satin EuroFinish.
