Flint Hill, Rappahannock County, Virginia began as a crossroads community in the 1740's and was established in 1843 by an act of the General Assembly
The 38 Doors were installed Circa 1907 and most likely retired with the 1962 Move. They were purchased from a local antique dealer in late 2019
These Red and White Oak boards were salvaged from a horse barn and served many years as the Horse Stalls.
We were fortunate to buy the entire lot of 38 doors consisting of 30 standard size doors and 8 Medium size. All will be available for sale.
These are the Standard or #1 size doors. The Banks measure 5" wide, by 6" Tall, by 4" deep and are constructed of White or Red Oak with a dark oil/wax finish

We are often asked at shows, "where do your get your Antique Post Office Doors". Well, we received a call in November 2019 from a private collector in Pleasant Hills, that saw our listing in the Ft Ligonier Days Program and she wanted to know if we were interested in purchasing some doors. Turns out, she and her late husband were collectors and purchased the Post Office setup from the Beallsville, PA Country Store in the early 1970's, She was downsizing and wanted them to go to a good home. At the far right side of this Post Office, there are 16 original 1896 Pointer Dial Doors. We are now offering these for sale.
Beallsville, Washington County PA was named for Zephaniah Bealle, a pioneer settler, and was incorporated in 1852. A Post Office Called Beallsville has been in operation since 1822.
The doors have been cleaned, oiled and mounted in Rustic Pennsylvania Cherry boxes that have an oil and wax finish.
The remainder of the Post Office was sold complete to a collector from Butler County.
There are 16 Pointer Dial doors circa 1896 available for sale. They are mounted in repurposed Pennsylvania Cherry with an oil and wax finish. Doors are numbered:
121-128;131-138. Please contact us for available numbers.
A family owned small business, located in Western Pennsylvania, uses a significant amount of "upcycled" and "repurposed" material. A large amount of our hardwoods come from deconstructed buildings in Western PA. We try our best to be good stewards to the environment.
Paul and Laura Fruehan started Wood-N-You Like It Custom Woodworking over 25 years ago when they were asked if they could duplicate a child’s stool for a friend. Paul started woodworking at an early age in the family workshop that was originally equipped with tools that belonged to his grandfather, Peter Fruehan. Peter was a pattern maker by trade and worked many years for the Lackawanna Rail Road making wooden patterns of parts for steam locomotives. Several of Peters' original hand tools are still used today in our workshop. Laura is our resident artist. She has always had an interest in art and painting, and has taken numerous art classes. Paul constructs all our items, and Laura completes a substantial amount of the finishing.
Our business today focuses on two areas. First, we build commission pieces that range from case goods to home furnishings. In addition to our custom orders, we are always finding ways to use recycled and cut off pieces of wood. A large amount of wood destined for the fireplace or landfill is converted into useful and decorative items. To this extent, we produce a small line of gift items that are significantly upcycled.
Finally, we firmly believe that we should give back to nature for supplying the original trees that supply our basic feed stock. A portion of our earnings each year are used to support the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, Rails to Trails Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, and Audubon Society. Additionally, we regularly support the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank (412) 462-5956
