Cellar Door

We are the proud new owners of a mid-1700's farmhouse. As you may imagine, we've got a few projects. Most I plan to do myself. For starters, I'd like to replace the cellar door. Currently, there is a rusted and leaking Bilco door. Ideally, unless someone talks me out of it, I'd like to replace it with a nice wooden door. I've searched high and low for multiple solutions, but the only things I've come up with are Bilco, Gordon and Steelway. None of them have wooden doors. And, I am yet to find an attractive metal or synthetic. I know I saw an attractive fiberglass solution on a DIY TV show once, but I don't recall the brand. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Cellar Door

Well I used to have a wooden bulkhead door and I personally would not go back to it I say replace the rusty one or sand it well and use a couple good coats of high quality rusty metal primer and then a good quality metal finish coat.
