Frame size could be the same size, just bigger rebate to suit the sash thickness. I make stiles for double glazing 57x57 with a 40x15mm rebate for glass (24 mm unit) 3/4 mortice and tenon.

First time on the forum and seriously impressed with your skills - any chance you could be persuaded to do a one-week course?

Many thanks Coley for sharing your experience and knowledge. We are building a workshop with 2 windows and a large barn door for my son (on a tight budget). Your posts are of great benefit.
Regards
John

Hi Corey,

Brilliant write up this.

Do you typically do the glazing also? Would love some details on this process. Specifically if you normally use timber glazing beads or putty for glass install?

cheers,
Kieran

Also, are your timber sections glue laminated? I’m in Australia and find it hard to get anything over 40-50mm

Joiner by trade, I personally cut all the mortice and tenons before any moulding.

Me too. Mortices but only tenon cheeks first; shoulders last after all mouldings, rebates etc.
Also after cutting to length and planing I'd do 100% mark up from a rod - once the rod is drawn up you are on autopilot - no further measuring needed, or marking from one piece to another. You'd have to work like that if you had several to do. Even just one it's essential, faster and eliminates error.
