We are often asked to reproduce / match existing windows and doors and sashes that have seen better days. Here are a pair of rebated meranti doors we have just finished today.
Colonial barsFinished Product, Work in progress
We are making a series of cedar frames with colonial bars. They will be sent off and some of the frames will be assembled on site to make a bay window (about an hour south of Adelaide). I am also trying out a new glass cleaning product which I must say is fantastic.

Leichardt JobFinished Product
Well, for a change for us we manufactured timber windows and doors, then the boss drove up to NSW with them, whilst myself (production manager) and our main installer flew across.
we spend the Easter break installing 3 hinged doors, a sliding door, new sashes for front existing windows, 2 new spiral balance hung lift up windows, an awning window, a large fixed lite window and a sliding window.
a mixture of double glazed glass and comfort plus low-E.
It was quite hard to get any good photos, due to the closeness of fences and trees etc.
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%.
