West End Rebuild

I was called out to look at a door panel that had been broken because a delivery person decided to knock on the glass rather than the door frame.  In doing so, he broke one pane and unshipped some others.  The client and I agreed on a price.  In removing it, it became apparent that there were even more broken joints than I noticed initially.  When we got it back to the studio, we began preparations to take it apart and rebuild it.

After the rebuild, we installed the door panel with great success.

The replacement glass is not apparent without close inspection, all the glass is clean and the lead and joints are sound for a few more generations.
