Plantation shutters

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

We have remade a whole house load of plantation shutters. these are operarable, but really play a more decorative role on the house rather than function. we had the best originals to work off, the rest were much too rotten. lots of time/ labour for these.

Timber continues to be a supply issue. Hard if not possible to source long lengths of certain timbers. One supplier sent me a pack list of 7 small packs.

I ordered 5 of them and he replied saying 2 had been sold already. Blink and you miss it.

Wood glue supplier has been waiting on his orders since august 21. We have bought the last he has, and will need to use a level up in glue (increase in $$$) instead once our regular glue runs out.

Laminate glass from one of our main suppliers doubled about 2 weeks ago. others have jumped by at least 25%.
