Wooden Window, Inc. President Bill Essert and his team will lead a tour of the shop, demonstrate how robots have innovated the craft of making custom wooden doors and windows, discuss how Wooden Window is the fenestration rehabilitation leader in the state, and review the myriad of options related to performance glass -- topics that are common with remodeling projects of older homes.
Repair or replace? What's the best way to go with older doors and windows?
How is it possible to replace a window in an older home, use dual-pane glass, and have it match the existing single-pane windows?
These questions and more will be considered on the upcoming tour at Wooden Window. There, you will have fun watching Betsy, one of 3 company robots, and other company craftsmen make absolutely beautiful doors and windows. So don't miss this meeting -- not to mention the smell of clear grain lumber.
The workshop of Wooden Window is located at 849 29th Street (between San Pablo Avenue and West Ave.). Thursday is a street cleaning day, so beware of street parking. There are ample spaces for your car in the church parking lot next door. Even so, carpooling is always encouraged.
P.S. Wooden Window produces beautiful sawdust and scrap. If you want some for whatever reason, please bring your own box or bag. It's Free!
