Clocks all Ticking

Clocks all working fine now – new hands, new varnish – and ready to be delivered.  Tested them by hanging them on my workshop wall.

Tick Tock Twice

By an amazing coincidence I have 2 large clocks to repair.  The first is an historic Indian Railways replica clock – it needed some dismantling, sanding down and re-varnishing.  The very same week another customer brought me a clock which had fallen off the wall and broken.

Wheelchair Access

Our customer today had unexpectedly found himself using a wheelchair.  Unfortunately he was virtually trapped indoors because of the huge step down from his front doorwheelchair access.  He came up with a solution and asked us to fit an extra-wide gate in the fence in his back garden, which gave him access to the path along the side of his house.  We cut into a flower border and made a new sloping concrete approach from the patio to the new gate. We were happy to prioritise this job to help him get his freedom back.

Barn raising in Bucks

We’ve been travelling around a lot recently.  The last job was making a palace for guinea pigs in Kent.  This one is a slate-roofed barn in a garden in Buckinghamshire.  Designed in consultation with the client and built from scratch.  As usual assisted by Milo.  Wood was sourced from our experts at http://www.linnellbros.co.uk in Silverstone.
