Here are summarized manufacturing steps. The goal is to share my project, not to provide a complete manufacturing process. Perhaps it will inspire you!
First, here is the temporary workshop where I was set to do the work. This is actually the future kitchen and a child's room before the divisions of my new home.
Selection of raw wood. In these photos, you will see the production of a set of four identical windows.
First step, planing of wood. It is really interesting to discover the beauty of wood that lies beneath the raw wood.
All planed wood.
The importance of working with quality wood.
Wood cutting. In this photo I do not use length guide because the wood is too long for my table saw. But when I can, I use one.
Wood cutting is completed and is ready for the next step.
Production of mortise and tenon with tenoning jig vise clamp.
A mortise completed. Note that I had to do some testing before I found the right way to do.
Here, note the Dado blade. Very convenient!
Producing a tenon. Note that I used two pieces of wood to make the thickness instead of changing the adjustments of the support. Faster and consistent accuracy.
A nice clean cut.
Second cut that completes the tenon.
All tenons and mortises completed .
Assembling the mortise and tenon.
Gluing with clamps. Obviously no nail or screw.
Start of production of exterior frames.
10 ° inclination of the blade with a digital tilt meter for the next step.
Cutting angle for dripping water.
Here we see the shape of the bottom of the exterior frame. You can notice the angle made earlier for dripping water. Obviously, the exterior is on the right in the photo.
All pieces of the exterior frames are cut.
The eight assembled window frames. Two per window.
Assembling an exterior frame to adjust the window frames.
Angled cut of the central portion of the window.
Fine tuning of windows frames.
Bevel to make space for the hinges.
Window with the adjustments made, and installed hinges.
Verification that everything works.
Cut slots for weatherstripping.
You will notice that the window has dual weatherstripping all around, for better sealing.
The slots of the weatherstripping are completed.
Cutting moldings. Watch your fingers!
A lot of moldings! And, just for four windows.
Manufacture of molding for tiles.
Moldings adjusting which serve to hold the thermos.
Moldings are completed.
Windows after sanding are finally ready for finishing.
Dye completed. All that remains is to reassemble the exterior frame and it will be ready for finishing. Finally!
Here we see the external frame installed on the varnish dryer. You can see the molding tile set in the center. If you do not understand what the window is installed on, see varnish dryer in my project work.
Varnish application on the moldings.
Window frames installed on the dryer. I managed to attach an entire window on the dryer.
The varnish is applied, I can proceed with the removal of the window.
The result after four coats of varnish. Note the reflection of light on the bottom of the piece.
The richness of the wood really stands out.
Here you can see a molding before and after applying the varnish.
Here everything is assembled with the thermos, obviously hinges and the "crémone"!
