Many people are accustomed to doing the installation of new window frames like everyone else - to call the wizards who dismantle old windows and insert new ones , most often made of plastic or aluminum. True, their significant disadvantage is the rather high price and the need to use special equipment.
That is why many people ask the question: "How to make a window frame with your own hands? And what is needed for this?"
To make a window frame from wood, you will need to purchase dried wood in the form of bars . But many people use plywood to make frames.
So, when choosing the required material, choose boards with a section of 5 by 15 cm or a bar of 5 by 5 cm.
You will also need:
You will also need a blueprint and some carpentry tools :
After the purchase and preparation, we can start working.
Glued wooden block is a well-proven material in construction.
Of course, you can use its simple version made of solid wood, but here the likelihood of the frame losing its shape due to precipitation will increase.
To avoid loss of shape, the tree is covered with a special protective solution.
And now we will describe the sequence of all steps in this technological process:
1 ~ 0. 2 cm.
Sometimes it doesn't work everything is as good as we would like and the elementary spoilage of the material turns out.
Therefore, to eliminate such consequences, the frame can be made with your own hands from strips of plywood.
For manufacturing, it will be enough to have 4 strips, which will need to be connected into a rectangle. It is important not to forget to set the angle to 90 °. To obtain the required profile, the frame is assembled from several similar rectangles with different widths.
Also, do not forget about accurate measurements, otherwise the weight may turn out to be skewed. Even windows with a figured profile can be made in such an extraordinary way.
This method is suitable for both blind and multi-sash windows, where there can be from one to three rows of glass.
If there is only one glass, then 8 plywood strips will be enough for you, which you will connect in 2 rectangles. And in order to secure the glass sheets, your second layer should be slightly smaller than the first.
When all the parts are ready, we fasten them with self-tapping screws.
Tools and materials you need:
As you can see, anyone who knows how to work with a tool and has a desire to do something with their own hands can make a window frame with their own hands.
Down with laziness and forward to new achievements!
