    I'm making an octogon frame for an antique mirror, so it is heavy. I'm considering just using splines but like challenging joints and would like to try something new. What would you use?

    Here at Lethenty Mill, I have 45 windows, of which I have now restored 35. I only counted them the other day in desperation! These are old windows, many of them from before my time, and I have patched most of them before (about 20 years ago). Nobody seems to speak about this task now and in our...
