Plantation shutters

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

We have remade a whole house load of plantation shutters. these are operarable, but really play a more decorative role on the house rather than function. we had the best originals to work off, the rest were much too rotten. lots of time/ labour for these.

Timber continues to be a supply issue. Hard if not possible to source long lengths of certain timbers. One supplier sent me a pack list of 7 small packs.

I ordered 5 of them and he replied saying 2 had been sold already. Blink and you miss it.

Wood glue supplier has been waiting on his orders since august 21. We have bought the last he has, and will need to use a level up in glue (increase in $$$) instead once our regular glue runs out.

Laminate glass from one of our main suppliers doubled about 2 weeks ago. others have jumped by at least 25%.

as per the design of an architect. timber infill panel in white trans laminate glass
bringing in some lengths of hemlock we managed to source from a retired ex-joinery guy.

How fast this year has flown by. As deadline to our one and only break looms, we are pushing as much work out as possible. Some random work of what has been going on;

A pair of custom cedar gates. The curve was based off a template from the originals.
Gas strut awning window. one of two which will be used in a food/coffee van.
gas strut awning when opened.
part of the cedar gate. this was the top rail.
About to fit the hardware to a single hung window (with spiral balances).
Our aluminium awning window frame. It is a 60mm frame, so a little chunkier than most residential frames. Outside view
Inside view of our aluminium awning. whitco chain winder, flyscreen.
