I’ve been going through my cutoff pile to get ready for winter, you know “save this one, that one goes for kindling, no wait, it’s got a nice figure on one side…” If you’ve done this, even the fir and pine bits are hard to throw away. Anyway, I found six ‘4s’ 1×6’s that were pretty straight and clear enough to use as window sills, side and top casings or facia all under 48” long.
Having never done this before I though I’d practice in my shop. I did the top, sides, sill and facia for the rear window where the lathe is as well as just the sill in the bathroom. A little ALEX for the cracks, KILZ primer, 2 coats of white latex semi-gloss and voila!
I not only got to exercise a bunch of shop tools but it’s a good way to stall while you are getting ready for a tricky project. I’m gearing up to duplicate a couple of Stickley chairs for a friend.
P.S. I did go back and clean up the paint on the window…
