The entire wood has to be replaced. At the moment we copy the original parts in new dry ashwood. The basis for copying is in most cases accectable. The header was gone beyond any chance of copying and has to be acquired at MACs.

For copying we have installed a carpenters bench in our workshop.We add new photos, when further progress has been made.
