Double Hung windows?

Has anyone built wooden double hung divided light exterior windows? Books, tips, or pics. What to watch out for. Have repaired and fixed before, but not built from scratch. Most of my experience with windows is refinishing, and replacing dry rot on old windows.

Wrong thing to ask a bunch of wood heads, but why would even want to try??? Unless you have a large supply of specialty tools and molding cutters, clamps, holding jigs, etc., etc.

Hey Scribbles,

Best I can do for ya is suggest that you click on the diy forum tab at the top left of this screen, or on the contractortalk.com advertisement at the top right. Both of these are pretty good sites and someone will be able to help you on either one.

The windows I want to make are the classic Doug fir, windows they put in old 19 century homes. I have all of the equipment to mate them that is not the issue. I am mostly curious on the expansion and contraction issues of a wood window in the weather, as well the counterweight mechanism. I have done restoration on dry rotted windows but it is much easer to fix something than build it from scratch.

I have built hundreds of traditional, historic wooden windows. Check out my website, give me a call and I can go through a few things for you to look out for, tips, a few tricks and such.

Your website is fantastic, it puts mine to shame. Lol... when are you having the next window class? I am in Northern California, I would not mind taking a week off and coming up, and I will be calling you in the next few days...
