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%.
How fast this year has flown by. As deadline to our one and only break looms, we are pushing as much work out as possible. Some random work of what has been going on;
Just a photo of a single sash remake from its old sample provided. I’ve actually just finished 7 different sashes , but here is a photo of one…changed to clear glass, but otherwise an exact match.
This new sliding door frame is ready for the glass. We are glazing this with double glazed units.
4mm clear toughened 8mm argon gap 4mm claer toughened.
Builder will install themselves, so we wont get to see the finished result.
This cedar arched frame was just picked up from the factory. We made this based on an arch template given to us, and working on opening sizes for existing leadlight the client wanted to re-use. Hoping once installed they will send us some finished photos!
Remember = everything we make is of a custom size to suit our customers. We don’t have to work on set/standard sizes.
Old and their new replacement sashes. Putty glazed, same thickness glass so the old counter-weights will still work.
Bring in your old sashes and we can reproduce them. Same idea with flyscreens. Size and detail will dictate the cost, but we can quote once we see (or email dimensions and a photo).
This is a little cedar bathroom window we have made with inbuilt shelf/cabinet with mirror. Lovely little thing.
Well, its been a hectic and busy few months for us all. Our timberside is literally filled with frames at the moment, and supply chains seem to lag along. We even had a problem of getting grey laminate glass for a short while…
