The Doors of Perception

21 Mar

Just finishing off my first serious piece of work as an independent maker, a pair of ash framed doors for a dining room framing high specification toughened glass with a 25mm bevel around the edge. It is taking me a little longer than I estimated, as I need them to be perfect. I can just fit around them in my little workshop, but I realise that if I want to be more efficient I will need more space. I have become so used to working inside a garage that I hardly notice the weird gavotte I have to perform just to turn the doors around for routing, sanding, fitting hinges, staining and oiling. A decent ceiling height and at least four times the floor area would be lovely.

I trust that my valued patron will be pleased with the doors, my perception is that they are of a very high standard. Perhaps she will allow me to photograph them in situ so that I can use the image to market my small business to others wanting a bespoke service for a realistic price.

As the amazing Jim Morrison of the Doors said: “There are things known and things unknown and in between are the doors”

    Get a clause in your terms and conditions that allows pictures whilst being made and as a finished item.
