Well late december on the very last job for the year i managed to cut my hand (snapped razer blade). An operation, a cast and some nerve damage was my end of year. However i am mostly mended and we have been back at TWM since early Jan. Although we make aluminium, it is the timber side which is very busy at the moment.
gluding up timbers to make a gate
Some of this work is headed for rural SA, and into Victoria. As the years go by we are finding that we are doing more work for interstate clients as well.

It has been a while since my last post. Not because we aren’t busy at TWM – we almost always are – but because I’ve had walls to paint, and all the plumbing redone at home.
Recently we have had 2 separate jobs come in at the same time for arched doors and door frames.
Have some photos.
Arched solid cedar door to suit doorframe. this job also includes a frame with double doors as well.
cedar arched doorframe with no sill. 2 doors are being made to suit.
cedar doorframes with arched hi lites. the doors will be standard recetangular double doors. but the arches will include leadlight.
how an arch is made. naturally you cant get a single piece of timber 2m wide by 1m high in a single piece. to make an arch lots of cedar blocks are cut to the curve required, then assembled together. its a time consuming job, but the results are excellent.
The wall I mentioned, well have a photo or two…
