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…

Commercial shopfront

Uncategorized

A shopfront had been fire damaged and required a new window/door.

All the beautiful artwork painted on the original window was burnt and cracked and damaged – but the owner said the artist will come back and do something new.

the African shop in Woodville had been damaged by fire. all that artwork was handpainted on the glass.

New clear anodise commercial aluminium shopfront. Note the wall so close to the window – we could not glaze on the inside. So we used 10.38 laminate glass, and glazed at the front only.

The doors,hinges, perimeter jambs and head, and the seals were all damaged in the storm. only a new bifold would be appropriate, repair was out of the question.
