The Orangerie - time for the 'walls'

This is where we don't want anything but evidence of your finest wood butchering in all its glorious, and photograph laden glory. Bring your finished products or WIP's, we love them all, so long as there's pictures, and plenty of 'em!

Many thanks, Jonathan...although the phrase "multipoint virgin" conjures up all sorts of images ! :lol:


I nearly made a similar response when I read Jonathan's comment :lol:

Not much to report. Endless hours of prepping the timber has given me enough for 6 double 'units' for want of a better word.

Some of the stiles have gone a bit banana-shaped but I know I can encourage them to behave when I instal them.

Image

These are all ready to go apart from routing the groove for the bottom panel but that's for when I get back. I've decided that I'll rout the Medite panels all at the same time. That way, the dust is done and dusted in one go. Waiting for the Medite External to arrive.

Need to get some of the multipoint stuff in to have a play to see what's what re the door stiles...sizing etc as I'll then cut the next batch of stiles to suit that and I can select those stiles that maintain their straightness for the doors. Then rip the remainder for the 'unit' stiles.

Hi Roger,

How's the orangerie progressing? I thought I'd highlight a problem I've come across with mine, in the hope that you can avoid the same issue.

This is the state of my eaves closer, absolutely full of flies. When I put my seal along the eaves closer, I thought about putting a seal top and bottom, but decided against this as I wanted movement of air to avoid condensation/damp, but this has now left with 3-4mm cavity which has become a fly graveyard on the south facing side of the lantern.

Keep in mind my orangerie is still open at the sides so there's nothing preventing the insects and occasional wood pigeon from entering, hopefully once the windows and doors are in, the problem will be dramatically less, but I suspect I'll still need the get the steps out periodically to vacuum out the bodies.

Thanks for the heads up.

To answer your question re progress, the answer is none. Done nothing for a couple of months. In fact, seem to have done nothing elsewhere either. Mojo finally given up the ghost.

Time I posted a bit about the orangerie. Progress has been slow, mainly due to lack of funds and more pressing other activities like these for LOML.

But we have made some progress. First task (and one that I really wished I’d outsourced) was to rout the borders to create raised fields on the Medite External bottom panels for the glazed panels and doors. I knew that it as going to get messy and so I connected up and baffled off everything that I could. I had two vacuums, the chip extractor, the ceiling mounted air recirculating filter and another recirculating filter machine all going. Masked up as well, obviously.

Even so, at the end of the session I had all this to clear up.

I was vacuuming up for days afterwards.

You've seen a few of these photos already ..

I then started work on the first ‘prototype’ glazed panel.

Top rail. I plan to use pocket screws to fix up to the outer frame at top and bottom as well as the sides.

What I call the Top Middle Rail…note the slope on the top for water run-off

Image

And I seem to a bit light on photos of the other rails !

All went together OK and so down to the rest. My trouble is that I hate repetition which is damn stupid really - especially with a combination machine as you’re forever swapping things over and resetting which is a waste of time.

So I bit the bullet and after a hard day’s graft I ended up wth these

and these

As all the stiles were prep’d I kept a weather eye one for those that were bowing after initial ripping etc so that I could earmark them for the fixed panels as opposed to the doors for obvious reasons.
