As well as furniture we also offer many other services. Wooden windows and doors can often become a problem. From simple repainting when they have become old and tired, to more serious problems, we can be there to advise and help. We also can turn our hand to many other carpentry and joinery problems, below are a few samples.
Windows and doors.
This is an example of a job we were asked to do which involved the total remaking of several windows and a front door after it was decided that the originals were beyond saving. We used original 4mm toughened glass to reglaze but could have easily adapted the windows to take double glazing units. With new window hardware it has given the windows a new lease of life and freshened up the look of the buiding.
Here are some pictures of radiator covers we were asked to make to fit into a lovely Victorian home. They are made from MDF to minimise shinkage and painted in white eggshell. There were six in total and they were all different sizes, from a very large one in the living room to a special narrow one for the kitchen entrance. We looked at different designs and opted for removable fronts, this allows for easy cleaning inside and access to the thermostatic valves. The client chose circle in circle grilles in antique gold which suited the house perfectly.
We have done a lot of restoration projects over the years. This is one of the more interesting ones. We were given the fronts some antique kitchen cupboards which had been purchased off Ebay. They arrived in numerous pieces and in a terrible state and we had to clean, repair and complete the jigsaw puzzle to get them all back together again. It had to be designed to come apart again for delivery into a very difficult to access kitchen.
Fitted bedroom furniture.
This was an interesting job to design and make some fitted bedroom drawers and wardrobes out of MDF with an oak top. The challenges involved getting it to fit together on site after making at at the workshop and making sure those gaps between the drawers were as perfect as possible! The use of MDF kept the price down and allowed the client to have a solid oak top for the drawer unit which looked great.
