Hello chaps, i have been really busy lately trying to move my workshop so i have been making preparations for that, hopefully share some pictures for you once im finished!

Here is a couple of oak jobs i am on the verge of completing, they are european oak construction, with teknos spray applied cypress gloss topcoat. The doors are sealed inside and out on the grooves on the outer face, and insulated with 1" ecotherm boarding. Rebated multipoint lock and double draught sealed. There is a stainless strip int he cill for the seals in the doors to hit, so the cill/seals cannot get damaged underfoot, and a continous seal through the rebate, that intercepts the bottom and top seals so there are no gaps when the doors close. No even at the bottom where the rebates meet.

How did you make the caulk (Teknos?) disappear? Does it dry transparent or did the finish colour it or....?

Its on the back of the boards ;)
Nice looking doors and window !- my only niggle would be the position of the window stay but thats down to personal preference I guess.

the sealant is called v groove sealant, this one is kodrin (the sikkens equvalent) and is very good stuff. it dries translucent, and accepts the waterbased coatings over the top. its also incredibly strong and stretchy. takes a lot to break/snap it. it was applied to both sides of the boards, just less liberally to the outside as i wanted it to be as invisible as possible.

im always in two minds with decisions like where to put the stay, but i quite like the window to open 90 degrees. ideally wanted a bigger stay....

Haha thanks Mark, got the handles fitted today! Oh and the doors too. Managed to find a nice little centre keep for the bolts on both doors, that works well and is easy clean!

Regards Mick


Hi Mick. the locks are ERA Ones, Bought as a kit from Marches Ironmongery, i then changed the gearbox on their lock kit to use the vectis gearbox, so it uses the more secure 5lever lock, not a euro cylinder.

Hi John,

The bottom rail in the door was around 10" tall, its just the boarding you see on the outside, and there all the same thickness top to bottom. If you look at the picture with the white sealant im gunning round, it gives you an idea of the rail size.

I see very clever. Could you tell me what the thickness of the rails were & the the thickness of the panelling? Also how did you fix the frame around the window opening on the door?
