Like everything from Fine Homebuilding, this is the best. A collection of articles, some a little dated, that give a craftsman some great ideas for window construction.

If you are making windows, the expense of this book is negligible compared with the hints and ideas that you'll receive.

Mr. Fixit? This will probably be over your head. You'll need real tools for this work, not Home Depot junk.

I'm building a 1900sq ft home and refuse to spend thousands on premade wood windows. (couldn't afford the house if I did) After much research I find window construction books are few and far between, this is just the ticket. Has down to earth building details, not just those out of the world extravagant windows but basic classic wooden windows of all types which I feel confident will be finished by spring.

I have built 2 skylights and installed 3 Velux skylights. This book provided new information, It is also a good source for catalogs although some of the contact information is out of date - the internet provided up to date information.

Two years ago installed a plastic skylight from home depot that did no open. This year I made a skylight that opens that is 3 feet by 4 feet! This book wasn't that much help because it spends so much time on million dollar home skylights. If I had a million dollar home would I need a book to show me how to install it? Would I have the time and skill to make such a thing? No! Still, it is an interesting read although the pictures and content feel dated - to the 70's.

I've been searching high and low for resources on making your own windows. More specifically OLD window sash. There's literally a section where the author reproduces a 200 year old window sash. Windows that old typically use plank cases, but the author just built the sash which is fine for what I needed to see. There are casement windows, arched windows and some other aspects to window construction that I haven't seen anywhere!

There are a lot of books on restoring windows, and installing windows. Which are helpful. If you're do inclined you could take apart an old window and copy it. But, I first like to get some info if I can that may explain certain things that are unique to window contruction so I can learn from someone elses experience. Now, unless you work for a sash company you're left with researching and perhaps you could take lots of pictures at Old Sturbridge village.

I'm looking at the sash router bit sets with a coping bit to construct mortise and tenon window. The problem is that they're designed to build newer windows that are 1 3/8" thick. An old window might be 1" thick. Plus, the muntins are narrow, there's no parting bead and the profile is wrong. My windows use a GREEK ogee profile, all router bits use a Roman ogee. There's a distinct difference.

You could have a sash company mill some stock or perhaps a lumber yard. I'm still stuck on trying to do it myself.

The author describes a way to grind your own router bits profiles using steel blank. I was going to go as far as making my own wooden planes or have some bits custom made.

I found this book by accident. The title doesn't give a good enough description as to what exactly this book is about. I almost past it buy as another mere installation of window book.

It wasn't until I read the previous post that I realized this was just what I needed!

This is a nice collection of articles printed in Fine Homebuilding. Most of the articles are 10+ years old at the time of this review. Because they are articles that address specific issues by a builder/craftsman/contractor they do not present a comprehensive approach to any window issue, nor do they present a survey of the field. Nonetheless, if you are looking for some practical advice there is much to be found here.

If your goal is to build windows in a new home, this is your book. I was looking for a "do it yourself" book on installing windows in an existing home, and thought this would be a good resource. Unfortunatley it wasn't what I was looking for, but I did get some benefit. I learned about what makes a good window and how to do some shopping, hence my 3 star rating. Certainly not a waste of 11 bucks.
Description was a little misleading - thought this would have more useful how to info.
