This Honduran mahogany porch restoration project shown here is a re-creation from the original porch architecture that was created for this house when it was built in the early 1900s. All the Honduran mahogany lumber shown here for this restoration project was selected by me from an exotic hardwood lumberyard in rough form and then milled and shaped at my cabinet making shop to the well designed finished product you see here. Honduran mahogany was selected for this restoration project, because of its deep warm reddish color that blends so beautifully with the homes reddish brick work. The elegant transformation of this house and the well thought out restoration plan went beyond anyone's expectations during the design and manufacturing stages.
Now that I had the necessary notes and some of the original wood parts in my cabinet making shop, I could now start duplicating the necessary components that were going to make up this newly restored restoration porch project. Each board that makes up the shiplap siding , was milled with an upper and lower shiplap joints or groove which allows for a weather tight fit that was so characteristic of the carpenter's work at that earlier time. The attractive rich rosy red Honduran mahogany that was selected for this restoration porch project, was selected without any knots while keeping in mind the true straight vertical grains that will boost this homes value for many years to come. The porch columns for this restoration project are made of fiberglass and painted with a brilliant white acrylic finish that will complement this porch project for many years to come.
I decided to encapsulate the necessary telephone wire seen here under the side dental work lower panel leaving an unobstructed architecture for this absolutely stunning restoration porch project. Notice the polished copper metal work that crowns this one-of-a-kind restoration project. Soon the copper roof capping will change color to an expected green patina creating an antique look for the years to come. The 90° corner angle shown here was easily achieved as the two sides meet with identical profiles. As you will see in the next picture of this porch restoration project, the 90° corner angle on the opposite side was not so easily executed as individual profiles would have to meet and blend evenly together in an acceptably fashion.
There are two major wood sections here that allow the two opposite profile sides to transition together so perfectly for this restoration project. The lower section's dental molding and it's bottom plank are joined to the bordering shiplap siding using a center key block. This was the easy part. The upper cornice front extends 4 inches over the dental molding while allowing the adjacent side to lay flat on its ship lap siding and holding the upper 4 inch crown molding to intrude into the shiplap field. This type of construction is consistent with Roman architecture that surrounds our societies every day and was incorporated into this restoration project.
This porch restoration project truly exceeded everyone’s expectations and imagination during the design and construction stages. Because the Honduran mahogany was select for this restoration project the homeowner will never worry about the wood losing its natural rich rosy red color due to sunlight, UV rays or other exterior elements. As long as the homeowners uses the necessary preventive maintenance on this exquisite porch restoration project they can expect their investment to always look as pristine as shown in these pictures. Every wood part that made up this attractive porch restoration project was completely sanded, dusted and cleaned to allow for the three coats of satin marine finishing varnish that will enhance this porch renovation project for many years to come.

A Queen's Village Center City, Philadelphia customer contacted me for some wood window shutter renovation work that were in desperate need of replacement. The customer was undergoing a Pella wood window renovation project and he wanted to restore the front of his property to its original condition with these original looking wood window shutters. New custom hardware was ordered and installed with these fully operational wood window shutters, giving them the true original look the customer was after and completing his wood window restoration project.
But, before the new hardware could be mounted to these handsome wood window shutters, several coats of primer and paint would need to applied. Now that these wood window shutters underwent the proper paint finishing process the hardware was installed over the paint keeping unwanted water and moisture out and from under. This wood window shutter restoration project, is just one of the many examples producing the magnificent results that can be obtained when a homeowner chooses to use real wood for their next home renovation project.
Exterior woodworking quality demands knowledge, experience and conclusion!!!
