If you want a stronger joint at the meeting rail then add joggles to the sashes . That way you can use a wedged mortice and tennon .

Curved architrave , make a template of the curve and pin it to the wood . Ring fence on the spindle moulder , close your eyes and pray !

Re: Early Sash Window / Shutters RESEARCH

I like the detail above the door , i have a picture of a window like that in the workshop but its more like a cob web bowed out . One day i will make it ( i keep telling myself )
Regarding the windows , it looks like they used a very large quadrant to break up the lines on the outside of the box .

Re: Early Sash Window / Shutters RESEARCH

The sash being in a pocket was as result of the great fire of London, where it made it compulsory (in London only - did not apply elsewhere) to firstly recess the sash by 4", then to build it in pockets. Design development probably had a lot to do with it too. Although it was part of the build...

To be honest I am not a fan of spiral balances. I have only ever seen windows with spiral balances where they are broken. I am sure this is not always the case though. You could say the same for sash cords but you can replace a spiral without taking the window apart . I think it will look alot nice...

The only time i have ever seen sashes fitted with the full lining showing is on here .
