“Looking for recommendation for local craftsman”

“Dear PoPville,

I am a long-time resident of Capitol Hill but a very recent, first-time homeowner. The house is a contributing property to the historic district, and the front door needs to be replaced (it is heavily rotted and is also not original). I have obtained a permit to replace the door, and I am looking for recommendations for a local carpenter to create an historic reconstruction mahogany door.

I have not had any luck at the salvage centers to source an actual historic door, and none of the wooden doors fabricated by larger companies are solid wood (all are laminates).

I would greatly appreciate any advice or leads that other homeowners might have to help in my quest to replace the door.”
