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.

Cheap chinese awning sashes vs The Window Man Sash

Finished Product

Chinese products are changing the building landscape here in Australia.

Some of the products are world class, and superb. the vast majority isnt.

A builder brought in some aluminium awning sashes he got from China. I am not sure they are even legal.

When you are building or renovating a house, make sure you are comparing apples with apples.
