Repairing a split door panel

Repairing a split door panel in Southampton. This split in a door panel happens when the door is in an exposed position, full sun all day through the summer and rain water in the winter. There is no need to replace the door saving you money and the enviroment, one less tree to be felled and one less door to be got rid of. Using a method i first used in my boat building days i machine out a groove about 12mm (1/2″) wide and about the same depth and then machine a piece of hardwood to fit into the groove this is then glued in place and the moulding detail shaped with a chisel. this process is called splinning,

Traditional standards. Traditional tradesman. Traditional service. I have been a carpenter for over 45years, 5 year apprenticeship as a boat builder, 2 years as a wood machinist, then a spell repairing furniture and manufacturing reproduction antique clocks. I spent a further 15 years working in a therapeutic environment passing on my skills, before setting myself up as a self-employed carpenter/joiner. As you will appreciate, I undertake a wide range of projects, so scrolling through the site map may well direct you to past work that may be similar to your requirements. The preferred way to contact me is by using the contact page on this site. However you can always ring me during normal working hours. Lead times vary depending on the time of year; small jobs I can often do promptly. I cover Southampton and I am also happy to visit Winchester and Salisbury areas, but a small fee will be charged.
