Your hallway is the warm, welcoming entrance that greets you and your visitors. It can be a busy space, requiring high quality furniture that can withstand the day-to-day comings and goings. Look no further than expertly crafted, sturdy furniture from The Baldy Carpenter, Fraser Dodds, for your hallway.
If you're looking to create a good impression with your hallway furniture, or just looking for something that little bit different including shoe storage, cupboards, sideboards, seating, tables or mirrors, then you should visit The Baldy Carpenter's showroom and workshop in Strathaven, Lanarkshire to meet with Fraser Dodds to see some of his previous work and to discuss your specific requirements.
Intricate Feature Gates
South Lanarkshire Council have contracted us to assist them in replacing and repairing the 18 feature gates that surround the former hunting lodge within Chatelherault country park in Hamilton. The gates surround the hunting lodge are viewed as a integral feature of the building. Originally built from Mahogany some of the gates were replaced in the late 1980's when a major renovation of the lodge took place. Since then the gates have suffered from constant use and the daily battering of the Scottish weather. All 18 gates need some attention however some are not as bad as others. In the first instance we are replacing gates that are deemed to be uneconomical to repair. The first gate was built and hung in October 2014 and was a single pedestrian gate. This gate was used as a trial and benchmark before proceeding to the rest. The intricacy of the build of the lattice work in the lower half of the gate proved an interesting challenge however after a few more brain cells were destroyed we managed to achieve the desired result. The second set of gates are under construction. These are a double set with curved tops totalling a number of 340 components individually measured and cut before being finally painted white to provide a gate suitable for the next generation of visitors to the park. read more
