Thread: Hi All

  1. #1

    Hi All

    Hi all. Just found my way here after being enthralled with Stu's Dungeon and following the link. Am just getting into woodwork, design and general making things.

    I am currently completing a set of double doors (triple glazed oak monsters), that are replacing our old up-and-over garage door. This has been a really interesting learning experience for me. As you may see in the pics, I don't have a lot of space, only a one bay garage type shop. But I am very excited by the idea of having some natural light on cold days.





    Just need to make sure I dont accidentally smash some wood or something through them
    Am considering some kind of easy put up, take down, protective screening system..

    Anyone got some suggestions as to what I should do with my old garage door??

    So yeah, hello everyone.
