Shop House - The beginning

The wood, as per the cutting list. The cutting list can be down loaded from HERE along with a Zip file of the drawing-set for the front section of the Shophouse. For Penangites, Darren Thum's furniture making workshop is the place to go to get a  good sawing job done.   Darren's place is in Love Lane, toward the top end.  The cost of the sawn wood was RM 160.  The dimensions were accurately cut, making the job of assembling the Shophouse quite straight forward.

Well the proof of the pudding is in the eating, as they say.  The cutting list proved to be accurate, even if the drawings needed a bit of correcting.  After a couple of days sawing and gluing, the front section of the Shophouse is ready for painting with primer.  And the drawing-set corrected!!! But first, how to do?  The following posts are a step by step guide to make this assembly.  If do not want to make and put the assembly together yourself, I am sure that any competent furniture maker could do the job for you.  This would, of course, add to the cost of the raw materials mentioned above.
