Welcome to G S Haydon & Son
G S Haydon & Son Ltd are a North Devon based carpentry and joinery company supplying high quality bespoke joinery items; including doors, windows, stairs, interiors to name but a few.

If there is any project that involves wood and it has not been listed or you would like more information please contact us by phone or email.
For some time I've wanted to read this book.
Our business survives on making unique items that can't be found in depots, merchants or retailers.
Sharpening and setting up tools is not all that difficult but it is an essential step to get good results.
After working on a recent conservatory project we have a couple of sample double glazed units in our workshop.
As you can see below, traditional glazing bars have very small rebates to accept the glass. Modern double glazing requires a glazing bar of at least 40mm to contain the unit propperly and secure beading. Contrast that with traditional bars that can be as slender as 15mm and normally faced with putty, and we have a big issue. There is also the proportion of a conventional modern double glazed unit, they are are normally at least 24mm thick which exposes a lot of spacer bar.
