    Sash windows

    Building sash windows is a straight forward affair. I bought a Victorian house in 1997 that needed 22 replacement windows, I bought a book and dismantled an old one then renewed all of them with draft excluders etc. Saved a small fortune :)

    Part 6: Preparing the timber I processed the timber down to manageable sizes on my bandsaw, then laminated pieces together. I had put off building the workbench until my new Hammer A3-31 Planner/Thicknesser had arrived. I thought it would be a good project to test it out and it performed...
