Coley

How did I miss this?

Fantastic write up and I fully appreciate how much time this must have taken so for that, I thank you.

I have waded through all five pages and every word, (good job I'm at work at the moment) really enjoyed it, a great insight into how a window is made.

I'm not sure I will ever need to make one but after reading this I really think I could have a good go and make a passable job, to me it's just a hobby but the way you have written it up would certainely give me the confidence to follow your instructions and get there in the end.

I just want you to know the window you made looks fantastic but more that your efforts were worth it as I gained a lot and enjoyed the read.

Thanks

Mick

This is simply amazing work you have done!
Attention to detail is what I like the most, I have never attempted to make a window in quality like this and I think I will never will because of all the machinery needed.
Good job!

Thanks David.
Don't be put off whatsoever by the machines I used. They are only used for speed. Every process the machines did, are easy enough to do with routers, hand tools etc. What I was hoping to show was the arrangement of the joints, timber sections and the orders in which they can be done. The machining stage is fairly boring, it's using the hand tools that's most enjoyable.
Anyways, I appreciate your comment.
Cheers
Coley

Wow, what an amazing thread. Thank you so much h for posting this guide to building windows. I love wood and have wanted to try and make some nice windows to replace my plastic fantastic ones. But what you did was so precise and beautiful I believe I will not even attempt it.

Outstandingly helpful thread. Thanks Coley. I don't have a spindle moulder but can see how to adapt my kit to do this. Very helpful tips.

Only just noticed this, thanks for the compliment. Don't be put off by it. Yes there are alot of steps, but that's all they are. Treat each step as it's own little job and before you know it, you'll have a window.

Glad you found it useful ;) Good to hear that even though you haven't got the exact same kit, you've got other options that will enable you to end up with the same.
