Arched frames and random work

Finished Product, Work in progress

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…

Wall cut and timber Bifold Window install

Finished Product, Work in progress

Last week three of us worked in Glenelg, installing some aluminium sliding windows, and the main task – a wall cut and install of a timber bifold window with timber servery bench. A lintel was used in this process.

some photos showing a brick wall being cut and bifold installed.

The inside is then finished with a bullnose sill, quads inside and out and the mortar from the bricks re-done.

Another day, more sawdust

A few random photos of things going on.

Yesterday i had to empty the sawdust bins, which had completely overflowed.

If you have never cleaned up massive piles of sawdust, I suggest you try it just so you know you should avoid it.

Cleaning out the sawdust extractor after one of our bins overfilled. aaaaah sawdust, it gets everywhere.

Making new timber sashes based on the old ones given to us. A common issue for timber sashes is they rot in the rain over the years, you cant repair them – you need new ones!

OAK doorframe for a church

Work in progress

My entire last week was spent on a first floor of a hall installing 16 bronze anodise sliding windows.  It was a challenge (4 of us there all week) but in terms of photos, pretty boring.  But this was being made at the factory by my timber lads and when i returned to work I had to photo this and share it.

Solid Oak. roughly 2900 high x 3000 wide. We are making a pair of doors (again solid oak) which when we install the frame will be hung on pivots.

The fixed panels on the sides will be adorned with crosses and other ikons for the church.
