Here are 2 front doors that Kropf Craft has hand crafted in the last number of years.  We enjoy building these doors but we are careful to choose doors that are in locations that are not exposed to the elements.  It is very difficult to impossible  to maintain a nice finish on  a door with a lacquer or poly eurothane finish in the desert southwest if it is exposed to the Arizona sun, or seasonal rain.  One of the things we have chosen to do with doors that are exposed is to coat it with several coats of Watco oil and Watco wax.  Ffinishing a door in this way it makes it easy to simply go out every 6 months and apply a few coats of oil.  It does not dry up and crack as does a lacquer or eurothane finish and it is easy to maintain for  those who lack the expertise in finishing.  It is a do it yourself job that anyone can do.  If maintained regularly your door will continue to look exactly the same as it did the day you put it in with little effort.
