    16 pane church window

    I just finished building this 16 pane window for a historic stone church. The old window was completely rotten as you can see. This is my first attempt at posting pictures so bear with me.Click image for larger version.

    Hi Larry, yes its got a rabbet on the other side. The picture shows the inside of the window. I was able to save 12 of the old, bubble glass to reuse, now need to find 4 more. I have about 8 hours so far, just need to do the glazing to finish it up.

    I don't know if this would be a good match, but try http://www.rockler.com/custom-textured-glass including an "antique" option.

    Sayer, did you build this using a router or a sash plane? Any chance of seeing any your building pictures?

    Bill, I dont have any other pics, this is the first time I attempted posting pictures so I didnt take many. I used 5/4 wood and trimed the inside with stop moldings. This way it gave me the decorative edge inside and the seat for the glass on the other. They wanted it replicated just as it was made. A lot of cutting but it does look good.

    Very nice. I'm paying close attention here Sayer. Lots of windows to build here, as Larry knows. What kind of wood did you use?
    Keep the pictures coming!
    Regards

    They chose the right man for the job.
    btw, I like the toy the wifey let you buy. Between that and the jeep, your shop must be shrinking.
