Craftsmanship

The Black Bear Screen Door Company builds custom wooden storm and screen doors one at a time. Customers have a choice on which material they would like to have their handcrafted door built from. Sipo or Mahogany. Sipo is a hardwood that is also known as abebay, okeong, and utile. After months of research, Sipo was chosen because of its appearance, physical characteristics, working properties, and most importantly the fact that it is harvested from areas that are practicing sustainable forestry practices. Care is also taken to order mahogany from vendors that are using sustainable forestry practices. Mahogany is commonly used in the wooden screen door business because of its durability, appearance, and physical properties. JP hard at work?

Sipo Wood Sipo grows throughout the tropical regions of central Africa, particularly Ghana and the Ivory Coast. The grain is interlocked and often produces a striped ribbon figure. The wood is light brown to reddish brown and has a mahogany-like heartwood. The wood is hard and decay resistant. Sipo machines well, glues easily, and is easy to stain and paint.

Mahogany grows from Southern Mexico through Central America and into South America. The wood is a dark reddish brown and has a wide variety of grain patterns. Mahogany has a high degree of dimensional stability, excellent finishing qualities, and very durable. Mahogany

Personally Handcrafted Doors Our doors are built with mortise and tenon joints for strength. The glue used is extremely strong and is specially made for outdoor wood products. All of the parts for our doors are personally handcrafted at the shop including the interchangeable screens and plexi glass panels. Quality control checks are done at each stage of the manufacturing process to ensure that your door is built to exceed your expectations. Finally, the doors are built using the same fixtures, gauges, and specifications as that of master craftsman, Kermit Greenleaf.
