This precision handcrafted tool is produced from exterior grade Baltic Birch and select clear Maple. This all wood door holder is self-adjusting for doors as thin as 1” or as thick as 2-1/4”.
It uses a simple wedge design to adjust for door thickness and clamps firmly onto the door to prevent the door from moving while you are planing, routing for hinge mortises or lock installations. Because it is all wood you will never damage an expensive door by scratching or gouging it from a metal part. It's a real time saver with its instant in, instant out feature. The wedge design will not allow the tool to open, unlike spring-loaded or gravity activated metal door holders. Fold-a-way feet allow for a firm and stable work surface. Height of tool from the floor to the top is 20” and the base is a full 24” x 11” with the feet rotated to their extended position, so there’s no tipping over while you're trying to insert a door. Unlike most metal door holders you only need one, no need to buy two. This is the tool you would make if you had the time.
If you have doors that are thicker than 2-1/4” and need a custom door holder made, give us a call and we’ll be happy to make one for you.
