Traditional Sash Making, the beauty of it

This sash was made 25 years ago. A bar rotted out on it. Just a bar. It could have been made 100 years ago, 125 . . .

The beauty of it is, tradition. Sash men have been using this technique for decades across the Nation.  Anyone of them can do as I have done here.

 

Here is another example. Three sashes from 1890s had a rough life in a barn. The bars and muntins had been shot out, etc.. But since the sticking was the standard of the time which is still in use by window men and shops like mine, new cedar parts were fast and easy to make and blend with the original remaining parts.

The best part was when I stacked them up, the shipping stencil (I believe these came to town by railway express) re-appeared.
