Im making some progress on these scrolls. The level scroll is relatively simple given I could work most of it on the spindle, with a bit of hand work to finish off the internal fold. With a flick to the left- The raking scroll is all handwork… just working the top and bottom square to the sides and then I'll start moulding it. #joinery #waynemavin #madeinsydney #convolute #handrailing #geometrichandrailing #americanwalnut #spindlemoulder #woodmachining #handmade

After quite a bit of toing and froing with the interior designer I finally have a scroll shape I can proceed with. The Walnut works a bit better than the Douglas Fir I used for the mockup. #madeinsydney #handrailing #joinery #waynemavin

A haircut and a shave is about all this old fellow will be getting along with the replacement top left panel which was salvaged from another door. It's a beautiful day out there I might go stand in it. ️ Enjoy your weekend. #onanysaturday #waynemavin #joinery #conservation #toonaciliata

Working through this mockup this morning. I'm just going to bring the scroll into the square to give them a picture of what it's going to look like in elevation. I have left the small bend full in thickness so I can blend in the falling line #mockup #geometrichandrailing #handmade #waynemavin #madeinsydney #joinery

Finally back onto the walnut geometric handrail. This is the scroll shank setout for the wreathed section. I've been asked to make a mock-up of the scroll to make it a little clearer for the uninitiated…. #geometrichandrailing #joinery #waynemavin #madeinsydney #joiner #handdrawn

I'm now where I wanted to be yesterday afternoon with the screen door complete. A little bit of scribing involved but it came up a treat I reckon, a shame it will be painted #doormaking #commonwealthheritage #thelodge #waynemavin #acaciamelanoxylon #joinery #madeinsydney

Welcome to my new website. I thought I would include a blog on this site to give me somewhere to share a background story on some of the work I do and the projects I get involved in. It may be something of historical interest; an interesting and sentimental choice… Read More »
