Our aim is to make the very best round wooden window frames at a reasonable price. They aren’t cheap but they are extremely good value. From my experience of replacing rotten frames I knew that the joints developed over the centuries for square windows just did not work for round windows. I looked at window manufacturing techniques from around Europe. I realised that if I followed the lead of Sweden, Denmark and Germany, and laminated my frames, they would be much stronger and much more durable. I made more prototypes than I care to remember, but now each frame is assembled from a surprisingly large number of precisely machined components. I have a German computer controlled machine that cuts each component to an accuracy of a few thousandths of an inch.
My opening windows consist of an outer frame, which is fixed into the opening, and an inner frame that pivots about a horizontal axis, rotating right round through 180º so that the outside can be cleaned from inside. Each frame is made up of three layers of wood. I carefully select each piece of timber, rejecting any knots or defects; each layer has eight segments finger jointed together.
Our workshop is located on the Preseli mountain at Droifa, Brynberian Crymych, SA41 3TG
