Bay Window Repair

Finished Product, Work in progress

A dog had chewed the colonial bars of the window. We had been asked by insurance to replace this section of the bay window.

This sash had rotted and no longer was operable. Again we were asked to replace this section of the bay window.

Old sash / New sash!

After a hell of a lot of care to remove the existing center frame from the above timber paneling. Same on inside – we managed to keep all the decorative beading on the inside. New panel in, cover plates replaced.

New awning sash in place too.

Bespoke Custom Door assembly

Uncategorized, Work in progress

After a few days out on work sites installing some doorframes, and a bay window repair, I’ve come to the factory and seen the lads assembling this exceptional custom door.  Just looking at it midway through assembly gives a sense of how much time and work is involved in this sort of project.

Well this covid-19 virus sure has played havoc with our economy and our lives through out the world. Take care of one another, stay safe and clean your hands often.

 

As much as work has dropped off a cliff, we are still here. Today we delivered this meranti sliding doorframe.

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.

Some cedar casement windows complete and ready to be picked up

here is the new window, western red cedar.

Scissor winders + stays and latches for the hardware.

Here you can see one of the other windows, internal view. Notice the scissor winder hardware. Top panels of glass obtained from the wonderful team at the Glass Emporium, as per clients request.

 

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.

Still here – 2019 kicking on

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.

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.

Arched frames and random work

Finished Product, Work in progress

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…
