Coronet Enameled Tubular Door Chime with three brass bells. 

Dear Chief Ding Ding Officer,

Our New Chime! Working great!

It looks as good and sounds very much like the sixty five year old chime it replaced.

Does Your Doorbell Match Your Floors?

Posted on June 29, 2015 by Robert Dobrin | 0 Comments

On occasion, a client requests an ElectraChime to match existing architectural elements. In this installation, we executed a Metro cover in white oak and used the same stain as the refinished original 1930s floors.

Paired with three nickel-plated brass bells, this Oakland, California doorbell niche is stylishly retro-modern with a kind of "always been there" aesthetic.   

Contact us about a doorbell to meet your own needs.

Varnishing New Metros

Posted on April 02, 2014 by Robert Dobrin | 0 Comments

Woodworking provides many pleasures, not least of which is laying on a clear finish to bring out the natural grain. ElectraChime Metro covers are fabricated in small lots from solid American Walnut lumber from sustainable forests. The visible spline joints provide strength and a subtle detail.

Here, metro doorbell covers get the first of several coats of varnish.
