OneOak door and frame

posted on July 16, 2012

Rollo Dunford of Dunford Woodwork, has completed his work in making a OneOak door and frame. Rollo’s work nicely complements the fine furniture that has been made over recent weeks and it will create an attractive addition to our exhibitions. It has been designed so as to enable visitors to our exhibitions to walk through the door.
