OAK doorframe for a church

Work in progress

My entire last week was spent on a first floor of a hall installing 16 bronze anodise sliding windows.  It was a challenge (4 of us there all week) but in terms of photos, pretty boring.  But this was being made at the factory by my timber lads and when i returned to work I had to photo this and share it.

Solid Oak. roughly 2900 high x 3000 wide. We are making a pair of doors (again solid oak) which when we install the frame will be hung on pivots.

The fixed panels on the sides will be adorned with crosses and other ikons for the church.

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.
