Christmas is coming and that means it’s time to get into the shop and build something for the kids. I like to try and build them something every year, and this year it’s going to be an easel for painting and drawing.
I’ve recently been playing BioShock Infinite and enjoying the Art Deco architecture and I thought I’d make something that would look at home in the game. As I had a few scraps of timber left over from another job I thought I’d use those to make a letter rack.
Recently in the workshop I’ve been making sash windows for an extension we are having built. I haven’t documented the process yet as I have more windows still to build but I thought I’d capture one small aspect now – hand carving the decorative molding on the bottom of the stiles.
In the fourth part of this series on repairing a window sill I got to the point where I had mostly finished the replacement part for the outer lining. In this final instalment in the series I tidy up the sill, fit the outer lining repair and tidy things up.
In part three of this growing series on repairing a window sill I cut, shaped and fitted the two largest patch pieces. In this part I prepare and fit the other patch pieces for the sill and start to prepare the outer lining patch.
In part two of this series on repairing a window sill I started to fix up the outer lining, made some patch pieces for the repair and applied wood hardener. In this part I’ll continue to make the pieces that will patch up the window sill.
In part one of this short series on repairing a window sill I showed you how to remove the rotten wood from the window. In part two I’ll begin the repair work by adding new wood and shaping a new piece of sill.
