My name is Peter McDonnell, welcome to my website.
I'm based in Leeds, West Yorkshire and have over 20 years experience in designing and building traditional wooden single door width, Georgian door surround kits, wooden door canopy kits. I also make gallows brackets, wooden corbels and other wooden products. I offer a personal bespoke service, for those who wish to replicate an existing door surround or need a "non standard door canopy design". All my made to measure work is constructed using softwood and is straightforward to assemble, fit and finish.
Take a look at my "previous builds galleries" for the many examples of wooden Georgian door surrounds, door canopy kits, gallows brackets, corbels and handcrafted wood products I've supplied around the UK.
All the handcrafted wood products shown on my website are designed, made and supplied by me, then fitted and finished by the customer.
Please note: None of my door canopy kits or other products are made from moulded fibreglass, glass reinforced plastic (GRP) or have plastic components (PVCu). They are all made using softwood, which take more time to design, build and deliver. Please bear this in mind if you are comparing prices, as plastic canopies will always cost less. Importantly I think, all my timber products are handmade, individual to you and not mass produced by machines.
Once you have paid a deposit, I'll start work on the design drawing as soon as I can. When all the details have been confirmed, then comes the construction phase. The photos below show the straightforward process, with the last photograph showing a typical door canopy kit finished and ready for dispatch. You can arrange a courier yourself, collect from me in Leeds or we arrange local delivery. For smaller, one piece door canopies, gallows brackets or other wood products, I can send via Parcelforce 48 in the UK.
Lead times from order, will depend on the work I have on at the time. But I will always endeavour to finish your project as soon as possible. Please read my "Sales information page" for further details.
I may be able to help with your Georgian door surround restoration project, if you are local to me in Leeds. Send me full details and I'll help, if I can. Below are examples of the work I've undertaken before. After a site survey, I will always confirm the details of any work required in a free, no obligation written quote.
Any questions, just ask.
