This is a simple project but a nice story on the journey here. The wife wanted to hang old sash windows in the living room. I didn’t want to pay the prices that the antique shops were wanting. By chance BoxcarMarty had been to an auction. He asked me if I wanted a few planes he had won. I jumped at it. One was a dado and the other was a stick and rabbet.
Now I had remembered that Roy Underhill had done an episode on the stick n rabbet. So I went back and watched it a few times. In the show Roy shows the corners being coped. I do not have the proper chisel and these being picture frames, weather proofing was not in the picture. I wanted to miter the corners and that was ground that I had no instruction on. So I did the first frame and learned how deep to place the miter, where to cut the miter.
I blogged on the plane and first frame. The first frame was done in sycamore. The project here were a simple 2/4. Hand cut, planed, molded and made for the wife, now she has three.
I also did two videos on the subject. If you have seen them sorry for the repeat.
