Exact replica’s were made and fitted to this garage in Southampton. The old doors were made sometime in the 1930s and the customer wanted like for like, the only difference in the method of construction was the way that I fastened the ledges and brace the original being nailed and the nails bent over to clasp the two pieces together, I used a waterproof glue with 40mm brass screws with the screw heads plugged. The originals had two tee hinges per door I fitted three per door.

Traditional standards. Traditional tradesman. Traditional service. I have been a carpenter for over 40 years, 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.
