Constructing Custom Doors with Italian Wrought Iron

By Additions, Joinery


Not all jobs are created equal. Sometimes building involves more cobwebs and muck than you can imagine. But not this job. This one was a pleasure from start to finish.

The task for this job was to help separate the television area from the sitting area without shutting off the room completely. This Bundanoon client had a very definite style in mind, including French Doors with open panels filled with a wrought iron feature, but not sealed. She hadn’t been able to find anything pre-made, so approached us to build the doors for her.

We worked with her to find solid timber doors that were in keeping with the rest of her home and that would suit the base for her design. Upon delivery, we then very carefully cut out the 3 middle panels from each door, sanding and finishing the openings to look like the panels had never been there.

Meanwhile, GMF welding, exceptional metal workers in Bowral constructed the wrought iron component of the client’s design. When these were completed, we installed them into the cutout sections of the doors and then fitted the finished doors into her home. Now that they’re in, it’s hard to imagine the room without them.
