Cross-posted in woodworking and remodeling forums.

I'm trying to find a door that matches the other interior doors in the house. This new door will be close to several other doors, so it needs to match. These other doors were common around here (East Tennessee), but the lumber yard went out of business, so I can't call them. I've searched the web and asked the lumberyards/hardware stores/distributors (with photos), so far to no avail.

So now I want to search again using the appropriate terminology.

Alternatively, does anyone know who made or still makes these doors?

Thank you for any help.

Handimac, thanks for the info. One of the searches indicated the sticking was "quarter bead". But what about the panel slope (term?)? It's not really square is it, since it doesn't have a step? Nor does the panel have any curves.
I'm only parroting terms I've read, haven't a clue what else to call this stuff.

At a lumberyard they can show you exactly what your looking for. The door is a standard 6 panel pine door that all millwork distributors would have in stock. The lockset is a Georgian in Antique Brass also available at a quality lumberyard.

There are several ways to build raised paled cabinet doors. Shops and advanced DIYers often use a router or shaper to mill the various pieces.

That's the bog-standard beaded sticking profile. The panel has a chamfer raise profile. Should not have any problem finding it; they are default choices.

Thanks to all of you!
I'll start calling around again on Tuesday and emailing with the info you've given me.
If anyone else has alternative names or terms for the profile, please post your response.

Thanks again.
