Bleached Oak Doors

004

Bleached Ash, Tempered Glass and Stainless Steel Mesh

made for Scott Murray, builder and remodeler

February 2014

We were recently commissioned to make 6 interior doors for a remodel by Austin builder, Scott Murray.  Scott’s clients wanted the doors and cabinets to be as light in color as possible, so a two-step bleaching process was approved on an ash sample.  The doors and moldings had to be constructed prior to going through this bleaching process.   Four of the final doors of bleached ash have a stainless steel mesh panel and two of the doors have the steel mesh panel and a pane of tempered glass to make the doors more noise and dust-proof.

Burnett residence

Iron and Steel
dimensions various dimensions

made for Dr. and Mrs. Burnett

August 2011

This is an Anderson/Wise project that we worked on over the course of 1 1/2 years.  We did all the ornamental and architectural metalwork in the home as well as some structural steel retaining walls that elevated the backyard 4' above the adjacent yards to allow for installation of an ingound pool.  Some of the a work that we are most proud of is the cantilevered garage awning, the outdoor fireplace,  the simple curved handrail and the front fencing with custom pedestrian and driveway gates.  The fencing panels were recycled from a church in Pennsylvania and were made from wrought iron, a material which has not been produced for almost 100 years.  The fence panels date back to the 1870's.
