Awkward Moments : #stardoors


Into every life a little rain must fall and for our hero Luke Skywalker it fell in bucket loads when he discovered that Darth Vader was in fact his father. As if this discovery was not enough the life hope and dreams and expectations were about to get worse, having established some form of relationship with Darth the inevitable problems that exist in every family came to the surface.

The above still photograph was taken one dark December day and the look on Luke’s face tells us all we need to know – Christmas was approaching and he had his heart set on a new front door and to his pad as his main present and he wanted his “Dad” to get him it as a present.

Luke is a guy with style and the door upon which he had set his heart was one to match his image – stylish and smart , tough and durable and he wanted it with all the trimmings – and the heart wants what the heart wants – and what Luke wanted was –


A Messina from the Italia range in Schwarz braun with Charcoal stick glazing and stylish curved handle

A classic Solidor Door from Timber Composite Door

For those who know doors they will realise that this was an excellent choice for an eligible bachelors residence – maybe Luke was pushing it just a little when he asked his “Dad” to include the Timber Composite Door First Class installation service as part of the deal – particularly as Darth had just had some pretty bad news from his broker re his investment portfolio and his finances were starting to feel the pinch so what was the conversation that gave rise to such glum faces –

Darth: There is no choice. I do not want to upset you. Luke, I realise how important this is. I currently do not have the buying power. Please forgive me I will try to make it up to you. Maybe in a month or two I can resolve my affairs and provide you with the door you desire.

Luke : No door , no forgiveness

Darth: there are other doors that I can afford – is this too much to ask

Luke : There are no better doors than a Solidor Timber Composite Door

Darth : No. I am your father you must choose another

Luke :….no there is no other that I desire

Darth : Search your feelings, you know that cannot be true

Luke: Nooooo! Nooooo!


Luke at the height of his Noooo! Noooo! Tantrum

Did Darth come up with the goods – well we have no record of any historical orders from a Mr Vader either at Christmas past or present so Luke is probably still out there somewhere in a galaxy far far away hanging onto a wall and screaming Nooooo!

Try again next year Luke

Here at Timber Composite Doors we can understand exactly why Luke fell in love with the Messina it really is a stunning door as are the other eighteen in the Italia Collection check them out yourself – this may be just the Christmas present your home deserves this year.


The bit we stole from Star Wars script and rewrote was the oft misquoted conversation from the Empire Strikes back where as quoted correctly below Darth uses the phrase –

“No I am your father” not “Luke I am your father “


Darth Vader: There is no escape. Don’t make me destroy you. Luke, you do not yet realize your importance. You have only begun to discover your power. Join me, and I will complete your training. With our combined strength, we can end this destructive conflict and bring order to the galaxy.
Luke Skywalker: I’ll never join you!
Vader: If you only knew the power of the Dark Side. Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.
Luke: He told me enough! He told me you killed him!
Vader: No. I am your father.
Luke: No…no. That’s not true. That’s impossible!
Vader: Search your feelings, you know it to be true!
Luke: Noooo! Nooooo!
