probably will install this frame next week. glass is on hold for delivery to site.
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.
Well i keep getting emails and cold calls saying i need to update my website. yet it seems to be doing ok.
Today i thought id post a couple of photos of our factory floor, a sash i re-beaded this morning and a close up of a lift up window – you get to see the beautiful grain of cedar up close. lucky you.
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.

Just a few photos of various bits n’ pieces that have occurred lately.
Well, earlier i posted some arched doors and doorframes which i loaded up on saturday. Monday Tom and I installed them. here are some photos.
The handcast iron gate hardware really made the frames stand out.
I just took some photos this saturday morning before i load them up onto the trailer, ready for installation on monday. Cedar arched doors and doorframes.
A new gate has been finished this afternoon. here you can see old and new side by side. Cedar timber.
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.
The wall I mentioned, well have a photo or two…
Last week three of us worked in Glenelg, installing some aluminium sliding windows, and the main task – a wall cut and install of a timber bifold window with timber servery bench. A lintel was used in this process.
The inside is then finished with a bullnose sill, quads inside and out and the mortar from the bricks re-done.
