Andy & James


Andy has help from various quarters and produces some beautiful joinery.

We are showing all aspects of the job, from selecting the timber specific to the job, and also how to cut with the minimum waste.

Squaring up timber blanks ready for marking out, followed by machining, creating mortice and tenon joints, moulding and rebating.

Dry assembly allows us to check dimensions before gluing and clamping.
All sashes assembled and shot into the frame. Finally ready to be primed for further decoration by others.

Once dry all will be nibbed down, openers draught proofed, furniture fitted, and glazed.
