Back for 2020

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

Well we have been back to work after the Christmas break – George and I since Jan 8th, and the rest of our staff on the 23rd.

Whilst I have been uploading more pictures through Instagram, I must admit I’ve been a bit lax on our website here.  Here are some of the things we have been up to – I could post a lot more, but I need to get back to glazing some sashes.

here is hoping to a successful and happy 2020 for all.

Scissor winders + stays and latches for the hardware.

In our factory, we are running up door stiles for assembly. Notice; full timbers (not blocks glued together with a veneer) and mortice + tennon joins. In the background you can see the solid 150×50 EX WRC timber pack which is how it all starts out.

Today we installed 8.76 OBSERVA glass into c-channel framing we had put up a few days earlier.  It is in a medical clinic. the staff can see into the patients room, without the patients unable to see back into their office.

8.76 observa glass

this type of glass works best when you have a dark internal room, looking out into a bright room.

New Wide belt sander + a few odd jobs

Uncategorized

Its the start of a new financial year.

We received our brand new 1300mm wide belt sander last week (just waiting on the custom ducting to rock up). It will allow us to sand wide doors perfectly, whereas our old one was narrower and just a little bit old. This new one has all the bells and whistles.

Last friday we worked in Happy Vally to remove an existing 820wide hinged door and fixed lite window. the old window had 3mm float glass and up in the hills it must be quite cold.  The new is a cedar 3 stacker door with 16mm double glazed units.

Here is a custom cedar window. we reused the hand made glass and leadlight to fit a new window size. custom beading and stop beading.

Bay Window install

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

Yesterday myself, Tom and Andrew installed this bay window (and another double window which ill add photos later).  The original window was rotting away and falling apart.  White cathedral glass on top colonial sashes, clear laminate on bottom panels. Sides are fixed/dummy sashes with the middle panel able to be lifted up (screens not in photo but sit on outside.)
