    Default Replace a front door threshold

    I am at the point of replacing my Front door threshold, just like in the article/video. Problem [at this point] is: I can't find a good wooden threshold. The local Big Box stores [Lowe's and Home Depot] only have the generic Chinese extruded aluminum and wood on springed strip. The one for a 36 inch door is not long enough to fully replace the threshold currently in place. The current one is 42 and 1/4 from tip to tip in the front under the jamb uprights. 35 1/4 exposed between the jambs. The 36" strip they sell is junk anyway.
    Can anyone point me in the direction of a source for the piece used in this demonstration?
    The video is at: http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/vide...047031,00.html
    the article is at: http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/arti...566725,00.html

    Thanks!

    You might look here http://www.doorthresholds.us/exterio...lds-c-112.html , try a local lumber yard, or the contractors desk at Homedepot they handle special orders.

    Another option is to find a local door hardware or millwork supplier who will likely have just what you need.
