Adjustable Height Threshold Replacement Wooden Insert

JIMMIEM's picture

I've got an exterior door with a wooden adjustable height threshold.  The door is over 25 years old and I believe it was manufactured by Stanley.  The wooden piece needs to be replaced.  So far everything that I have read online has said that I probably won't be able to find a replacement part.  One recommendation was to mill my own.  I could also replace it with a rubber or vinyl piece.  Suggestions?

Thank You.  White Oak?  This is for a front entry door.  I had done this for a door off the back of my garage which gets very little use and gets stepped over when entering and exiting due to the height of the interior floor and exterior step.  Instead of milling a piece I bought a flexible rubber gasket and cut a piece of wood to lay in the channel and provide support to the rubbber gasket....this provided a really good weather seal but probably wouldn't hold up well to heavy foor traffic.
