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…

A nice job today, removing old glass, colonial bars, transoms, mullions, sashes and so on. replaced with 10.38 laminate glass for a stronger and safer result, and with a much fuller view to the river (west lakes).
