Venetian sash are those where the frames are divided by mullions into three or more openings, in this case the centre pair of sashes is hung, the smaller side ones are fixed, the solid mullions are there to divide them, the cords for hanging the centre pair of sashes are taken through the top of the mullions over pulleys into the side boxings.

Start with the sill with sloping shape and joints for the box-linings and mullions.

Top part of pulley grind off, so that the wheel can be brought close up to the head of the frame.

In the mean-while I  started on the wood for the windows.

This is a plate that will cover up the cord that will run over the top of the fixed sashes.

Now that the double glazing is in place I can cut the lead weights, hang the windows and make them slide.
