Project builds #63: Sashes slow painful work

So after a week of working decent hours 7-10 hours a day on these sashes finally ones gone back in (almost) I fully rebuilt the box for the bathroom window, the youngest window in the house. This included a new oak Cill new bottom sections to the box faces and the outers and new inner faces to the frame. Then a new meeting rail for the top sash and a new complete bottom sash.

I’m some what glad I learn hand work when I started out as this work has predominantly been done by hand as I’m 200 mile from home and working in my uncles garage.

Now to tweak the weights for the heavier bottom sash and get it fully finished.

Had a painful afternoon when I got a sash weight stuck trying to reinstall them and pulling on it crushed my finger between weight and Cill removing a lot of skin.

Wheaties - Bruce A Wheatcroft ( BAW Woodworking) ...

Looks like you have it under control , nice work . When ever I get hurt , the first thing I think is how long is this going to take to heal ?

Cheers Bruce had a belly full just taken a teadious age to get anywhere. Finished this rough one and got the sashes for the next window done. Thankfully a cleanup reglaze and a few small patches were all that was needed on these so they will be thrown back in tomorrow and the third one stripped out.
