'I make custom, high-quality hardwood doors for a living, but no matter how many doors I see, I always marvel at the craftmanship involved: The way a door maker can bring out the wood grain by using quartersawn boards, for example, or how the mortise-and-tenon joinery makes a joint that won't open up for 100 years or more. But there's something else besides the craftmanship that always strikes me. It doesn't matter whether it's a thick oak door on a medieval English castle or a modern stained-glass assembly with a delicate arching sash. In some way, all doors are magic, offering us the possibility of mystery or the unexpected, just beyond the turn of the knob.'-Grant Taylor, owner of Lamson-Taylor Custom Doors
