Cabinet Door

21st May 2020:

We were asked prior to lockdown whilst collecting wood, screws etc from a lady if we could in fact repair a door from a glass cabinet.

The door was taken away and brought to the shed.

The week prior to lockdown the remainder of the old glass and putty was removed from the door with some difficulty.

New glass was ordered and collected together with a brown putty. The glass being duly fitted and put back into the frame for setting.

Due to the lockdown I brought the door home with me and this week set about finishing the project. i.e. rub down the new beadings,
stain them to match the existing oak door frame and then polish and buff.

I have today completed the project and together with the help of Phil it has been returned to its owner (under social distancing) who was very grateful for the work carried out.

I have since received a phone call from Janet (the lady who the glass door belonged to) just to say how pleased she was with the workmanship etc
