Homemade windows for Garfield

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

I want to make working sash windows for my Garfield which has been despatched and will hopefully be with me inJanuary.  Am trying to locate some double channel moulding to help make the windows and I just wondered if anyone knew where I could find some. I'm in the UK and I'm finding it difficult to locate any.....

Hi, Helen; be sure to introduce yourself in the Newcomers' Forum.  If you have access to a router you could make your channel molding.  Another way would be to take very thin basswood (obeche) and cut into strips of different widths and build your sash channels like a sandwich.

BTW making your own working windows and doors, you're a lady after my own heart!

    • Window Parts
      By PapaJKK
      All the window parts. After sanding, filling, sanding, and more sanding, painting, sanding, painting and sealing, the windows are ready for assembly. I chose to glue the top frame in and only the bottom frame opens. This helped make a rigid window frame that can be handled without falling apart. Notice the gluing jig I made for assembly.

      15 windows, 11 pieces per window, 161 total pieces. Nice to have that bit finished. 
    • Fairfield, McKinley, Garfield - Between Santa Fe and Albuquerque
      By Talina
      I have two partial kits-Fairfield and McKinley-free. I also have a Garfield that has been started. Whoever started it has done a beautiful job so far.all the punched out parts are bagged and labeled. Not really shippable,but willing to meet people part way (located between Santa Fe and Albuquerque). Want a totally reasonable amount. Mostly want it to move on. Contact me for pictures,as I don't seem to upload pics.
    • Willow Dollhouse Kit
      By Small Passions
      Could someone tell me what the ceiiling height of the the Willow Dollhouse is?  Thinking of purchasing and wonder if I would be able to replace the doors and windows with standard dollhouse (non-Greenleaf) elements.
      Thanks!!!!
    • Acquired 2 Magnolia Dollhouse Kits
      By hdatsopoulos
      Hello Everyone! I recently acquired not 1, but 2, Magnolia Dollhouse kits from Corona Concepts. My parents found the boxes tucked in the back of a closet when they moved into a new apartment. When they pulled the boxes out and realized what they were, I got really excited, because I love building dollhouses, and the Magnolia was one that I always toyed with buying. It was like Christmas in July! However, it looks like I’m missing pieces, that I will either need to build myself or reorder. I already know that I’m missing 24 of the 32 window sashes that I need. Let the building challenge begin!
