Hello all

Postby Logger » 13 Nov 2019, 21:58

Hi,

I have joined this forum following a recommendation from Roger S. Apparently, this forum is a more friendly place than another one i am a member of.

I have been running my joinery business for 6 years now. I am also a picture framer. Based north of Bath near Badminton, I was a picture framer first, then was given an old bandsaw and table saw, so started making use of them.

6 years on, joinery is now about 80-85% of my turnover, and i have been able to invest in newer and bigger toys (i mean machines!) and i move into a bigger unit next week. Most of my picture framing i do for artists including Jack Russell (ex England cricketer). Frames are normally hand finished frames including guilding.

Joinery wise, i make doors and windows, furniture, kitchens, all the usual. Despite the fact that they provide my income, i am lucky enough to still consider both framing and woodworking as hobbies.

I have attached photos of a wardrobe i recently made and a frame i did for a Jack Russell oil painting of Ashes Headingly test which has gone to the Headingly Heritage Museum.

Cheers
