This one is a reclaimed beauty from a farm in my hometown. We're in the area where George Washington crossed the Delaware River, so there are still cool old relics from this era, though they are disappearing fast.

It's from a homestead that was around since the early 1800s, though I can't be sure how old this door is. It would probably have to be dated by the hardware. There are names carved into the backside of the door which are from 1913 and 1914, respectively. These appear to have been put there by one of the children because his name is carved in cursive and the 1913 is below the 1914 "autographs", so I'm guessing it was a way to record his growth in height.

I tried to Google the name but there were no references. This interior door measures 79" tall, 29-1.2" wide, and is a full 2 in thickness. It appears that this Pine wood was harvested, milled and put together in short order, because the sap was still leaking after installation, as can be seen in the photos. There was no danger of the planking warping during the cure process, however, because each 7-3/8 plank was tongue-in-groove and run vertically on the front, horizontally in the back, then nailed and bolted with the hardware. This is why I'm thinking it may be older than the late 1800s because commercial wood should have been more readily available and this probably came from the homestead.

The hinges are hand forged wrought iron, with two 19" hinges and a 25" cross brace piece for the lock. All of the original nuts/bolts are on it. It's oriented to open from the left side and swing to the right, but could be flipped and have the cross piece moved down without much noticeable impact.
