Default making windows

hi guys
Just wondering where to start on making windows, I have briefly seen some US router bits that make window forms from a single bit but I'm in the uk. Any thoughts on where to start even some video links would be a great help to get me started.
Many thanks
dave

This one might help. How to Make Wood Windows - One Project Closer

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I make windows all the time at work, normally using a spindle moulder, which is only a big router in a table really, most of your moulding work is going to be rebates, which should be easy to do, the splay on the cill and glazing beads should be at an angle of around 7 degrees, not sure how you'll do that with the router, someone here is sure to know though, the only other thing in the UK is that you'll want to add in a draft strip, which is a specific cutter normally and the drip moulds which we always use a round bit for.

HI

You are making a easy job to hard, you can do it all with just one router bit

I've got some windows to make as well.
Other than tenons, what else does that bit do Bob? Looks like it could make bridle joints.
Are they suitable for windows ? Or must it be Mortise and tenon ?
