An Oriel window is like a bay window but held up by brackets.
I draw out the plan on a piece of plywood. And started with making the sill.
Here you can see the start of the sash framing. It will be hollow to allow the contra weights going up and down.
Sash frame put together checking it on being square and true before glueing.
Started work on the sash windows.
Hardware fitted, I put the weights on as well to check the sliding of the windows, very smooth.
Start the brackets.
The window will sit on the brackets, covering the window opening, I also lead a steel cable that starts under the sill runs through the sash boxes comes out on the top and screwed against the wall, to make the firm fit.
The window will sit three storage up a house looking out over Fishguard harbour.
Photo’s will follow.
