These historic wood replication windows in this beautiful porch were milled, built and installed by Daniel Westbrook.
After procurement of the vertical grain fir material for making the jambs and sash, came the shop work to make the windows. Jambs came first in this case, and were made with a 12 degree slope to the exterior sills, and rabbeted sides and head jamb to receive the sash. The sill wings were kept extra long for fitting the outside miter in the field when installing. The sash were then made by milling the stock in my shop, there were several shapers, joiners, table saw, and many other shop tools used to ensure consistency and quality. Once the sash were assembled and sanded, I primed all sides, and glazed, with traditional glazing putty. The sash were transported to the field and installed in the already installed jambs. (it was easier to do it this way to keep the the project going with siding and trim). In the traditional way, the interior windows stops are installed after the interior trim, so the sash can be removed without taking out the trim, so it is also with install.
