Joinery

Joinery: 'The art of jointing together two or more pieces of timber to make useful internal and external fittings of a building; distinguished from carpentry, which deals with the constructive woodwork.' Ancient Egyptian woodwork, circa 3500B.C. has survived and shows recognisable joints to ones used today, evidence that jointing wood 'works'. These traditional techniques have not altered or changed much as they are 'fit for purpose' and last.

We use properly jointed timber in our work, paying much attention to the detail in the exterior weathering (to facilitate rainwater run off) and allowance for seasonal movement in the timber. We take great accuracy in the preparation, setting out, fitting and fixing, and pay particular attention to the finishing off.
