Another day, more sawdust

Finished Product, Work in progress

A few random photos of things going on.

Yesterday i had to empty the sawdust bins, which had completely overflowed.

If you have never cleaned up massive piles of sawdust, I suggest you try it just so you know you should avoid it.

Cleaning out the sawdust extractor after one of our bins overfilled. aaaaah sawdust, it gets everywhere.

Making new timber sashes based on the old ones given to us. A common issue for timber sashes is they rot in the rain over the years, you cant repair them – you need new ones!

OAK doorframe for a church

Work in progress

My entire last week was spent on a first floor of a hall installing 16 bronze anodise sliding windows.  It was a challenge (4 of us there all week) but in terms of photos, pretty boring.  But this was being made at the factory by my timber lads and when i returned to work I had to photo this and share it.

Solid Oak. roughly 2900 high x 3000 wide. We are making a pair of doors (again solid oak) which when we install the frame will be hung on pivots.

The fixed panels on the sides will be adorned with crosses and other ikons for the church.
