37. The structure of the frame will be copied...

38. ..and missing corner fillets replaced using the

internal board for a pattern

39. First the wood has to be cut to the right size

     

40. The new frame being constructed.

41. Still using the old frame as a guide.

42. It is then offered up to the front to see if it fits.

In this instance, it's perfect.

     
     

43. The corner fillets are then marked out of new wood

44. And cut

45. Then fitted to the new frame.

     
     

46. After gluing and stapling the frame, it is offered

up to the front again. Still looking good.

47. A snug fit.

48. A new piece of internal roof board is then bonded

to the new frame. This is left to set for a few hours.
