Tim's always happy when there's wood to be showcased. Starting with Australian Oak colonial style skirting and architrave's. Then we had to get a few Blackwood boards out of some logs so sadly (haha) it was onto the Lucas Mill. What a fabulous Australian made machine. It's so versatile and easy to use. It was tricky work to sort out the best way to cut so we had butterfly matched pieces and to rebate the underside of each one to fit snugly over the window frame (see the second pic). The face of the ledges couldn't be any more than 5 mm thick so the window winder could still function properly. That done it's onto preparing the ledges and a lot of tinkering to get a nice fit. We love this look, with the natural edge disappearing into the wall and the top ledge to match.

Then it was on to the saw mill and rebate the back of some blackwood boards. ready to turn into window ledges. We needed 3 sets.
