Well we have been back to work after the Christmas break – George and I since Jan 8th, and the rest of our staff on the 23rd.
Whilst I have been uploading more pictures through Instagram, I must admit I’ve been a bit lax on our website here. Here are some of the things we have been up to – I could post a lot more, but I need to get back to glazing some sashes.
here is hoping to a successful and happy 2020 for all.

Some cedar casement windows complete and ready to be picked up
here is the new window, western red cedar.
Scissor winders + stays and latches for the hardware.
Here you can see one of the other windows, internal view. Notice the scissor winder hardware. Top panels of glass obtained from the wonderful team at the Glass Emporium, as per clients request.
In our factory, we are running up door stiles for assembly. Notice; full timbers (not blocks glued together with a veneer) and mortice + tennon joins. In the background you can see the solid 150×50 EX WRC timber pack which is how it all starts out.
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.
this sash with grey glass was originally putty glazed. client asked to remove the putty and rebead with custom bevelled beads. much easier to paint.
all the frames stacked up to give some workspace for more.
close up of a single hung lift up window. inside view (you see the sash lift handle) and double glazed. You can see the finish of the cedar timber is very beautiful.
I’ve been pretty slack posting new bits n pieces up.
too much to do!
new window made basedon old broken one. quite ugly but who are we to decide. it also has pink glass for it.
double glazed cedar lift up windows.
cedar sliding door
sash rails being prepared for assembly. all those round bits on the end become the sash horns. photo’d in black and white for a change
Well we have come back (the 9th for George and I with the rest of the staff fully back on january 23rd 2017). I’ve been a little slack in uploading new images of what we have been doing so today here are a few random images of what has been going on the past few months.
