@roger.von set up a clever make shift lathe with an old drill and a wood jig. This is a great way to paint spindles quickly without annoying drips. We are using shellac primer with Benjamin Moore Aura exterior green.

This is a short film shot and narrated by Stephen Mason (real last name too). Steve is a brick and stone mason from Ireland. Multi-talented and works in his spare (full time) for Hunt Heritage. For more of Stephen’s great film work, check out his director’s reel on the link in the bio.

We did this restoration 4 years ago and it still unfinished. This building had seven layers of paint and the front brick was very unstable as it is a single veneer. We brought this back to life on a very tight budget. #cabbagetown #heritagerestoration (at Cabbagetown, Toronto)

Its all in the details.  Here is a rail moulding that is original to the mansions construction.  There are remnants of gold leaf on the centre pressed wood portion and the wood was stained dark cherry.  We will stain the wood back to its original state.

We are in the process of matching hardware for the interior and exterior doors at the Selby. @danlewisuk discovered they are Corbin hinges and helpful guys at the door store confirmed the mortise locks are Eastlake (rare). They will now provide matching knobs and locking mechanisms. Love this store… If you haven’t been - its worth the drive to Dufferin and Castlefield - Toronto. @thedoorstore

Putting some finishing touches on some beautiful old wood doors that we brought back to life. Thanks @roger.von @jordan___francis - awesome work! (at Hotel Selby Your Rosedale Valley Inn)

Any of you have a love affair with old stairs? I do - look at this dreamy beauty that @periodcraftsmen aka Freddy Roman posted.
