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.

Commercial frames – automated door!

Well, its been a hectic and busy few months for us all. Our timberside is literally filled with frames at the moment, and supply chains seem to lag along. We even had a problem of getting grey laminate glass for a short while…

here we are running up endless strips of stop and parting beads. All cedar in this lot.
A rather large cedar door. We will hang it tomorrow as a cavity slider at a home.
Door and sash rails. Mortice and Tennon cuts exposed almost ready for assembly.
Made these very little custom casement “windows”. Mill finish. Using angles to make a Z shape, and basic sash stock. I believe they will be used in gravestone heads once they are anodised gold. The perspex sheets have a protective film, but are clear once removed. They will add a little lock when they are ready to install.
This we installed a few weeks back. The original window had a tree branch meet it with force.
200×200 Jarrah. Yes indeedy.
OK one of the biggest differences in timber/aluminium windows are colonial bars. In timber each “square” is a seperate panel of glass, and the lines are full timber. In aluminium (usually) the bars are glued onto the one large panel of glass. The bars are siliconed on both sides to give the illusion of seperate pieces.
Glazing some tiny awning cedar windows.
Make something wide and heavy they said.

Blackbutt Stacker Doors

Finished Product, Work in progress

Blackbutt or Ironwood is a very dense hardwood. nearly 900kilos a cubic meter its almost 3x heavier than the cedar we usually work with.  Here we have made a corner stacker door system + a standard stacker door. We will install tuesday at mt barker.

 

Alum to timber install

Uncategorized

this morning we removed an aluminium garden bay window in a kitchen, and replaced it with a more traditional window that would have originally been there.

This is the aluminium window we were to remove. This is to coincide with a kitchen refit inside. note the roof- that actually opens!

Window removed, and the opening exposed. You can see how much silicon on the sides (and head) were used on the alum window.

New Cedar Window. Quads outside, lining and aves on the inside. new kitchen bench will slide right up against the window sill.
