Architectural Joinery and Turning

I am  a qualified joiner and offer an architectural joinery and turning service, making replacement spindle balusters, newel caps, finials and other turned items for the restoration of buildings. In my workshop I can also reproduce doors, sash & case windows etc to bespoke sizes and style.

I have a selection of reclaimed pitch pine and scots pine beams in stock.  I can match a replacement piece of architectural joinery or turning with existing woodwork. The beams are cut down to size and used to make newel caps, posts and spindles with similar grain to the originals. After a year or two the colour will tone down to be an even better match.

The beams all come from various demolished textile mills in the towns of Hawick and Selkirk. One such mill was even within a stones throw from my workshop. I also managed to salvage some beams from a demolished church in Galashiels. Sadly, all the finer woodwork had already gone. Nearly all my materials for making replacement staircase parts are from reclaimed timber, so the wood is probably a similar age to the original timber being replaced. This helps with matching the grain patterns on your original wood features.
