Window Restoration Bench


Moving into a larger shop and got to re-think how our work benches work. This one is adjustable for any sized window or worker. No tools needed to make the rest move. Just move it to where you would like it. Should be helpful with production.

Had a more detailed post earlier but will hold off on more post until I see this one stuck.

Re: Window Restoration Bench


How are you making new parts? Traditional style?

Re: Window Restoration Bench


Yes, If I need to make a new part I make a reproduction of the old. Can't see how you would do it any other way really. I recently picked up a nice pallet of 60 year old sash parts 4' long made of white pine from a local supplier who used to make sash. Comes in very handy when a meeting rail needs replaced. Other wise I'm using cypress for replacements treated with borates.

Re: Window Restoration Bench


Through M&T? Pins? What about the check rails?

Re: Window Restoration Bench


However it was built, we build it again; just like the old one. Steel pins, wood peg's, what ever...

What's your point? You seem to be nothing less than a trouble maker on this forum.

Just asking questions, why do you always get so defensive?

Just curious how you are accomplishing your restoration joinery.

Re: Window Restoration Bench


Here's a close up of how the easel works. The bottom shelf has a "L" bracket attached to the bottom and back and rests on the lattice (1" x 3"). The bracket is held in place by resting behind the upper lattice. The lattice was put in every 5" I kept the brackets close to the 2 x 6 main frame for the best support.

Re: Window Restoration Bench


Another benefit is that the shelf can be totally removed to do work on doors.

Re: Window Restoration Bench


Next step is to find some low cost commercial grade carpet for the top so it can double as a glass cutting station on the open end.

Re: Window Restoration Bench


Built our storage rack this week. This will fit up to 64 sashes. The saw tooth design will come in handy for letting paint dry and has very little contact with the surface of the window.

Re: Window Restoration Bench


It can also double as a torture device for bad employees!

Re: Window Restoration Bench


Very nice benches and such. I'm redesigning my shop to specialize in even more window restorations and will be using this for a template. Jason are you still out there? I know this is an old thread.
