Tinkering

After repairs and varnishing to my side hatch I was left with these top and bottom of the frame. They were doing no harm, but like me  they weren’t worth keeping so they had to go.

I chiselled out a rebate being careful to knock off one of the corners.20161214_153332 

Then I took this old piece of brass bus bar (which I had been saving for just such an occasion)………….

………and, loping a piece off the end, cut and filed one of these, bevelled all round of course, and a brushed/satin finish.
