I live in an old log home in Oregon, not made from a kit. There are a large number of casement windows, some open, some do not. They appear to be made from either quarter-sawn hemlock or fir. I have searched, but cannot find true 5/4 (after planing) material so will be forced to buy 2X6 clear fir and plane it to make storm windows. I am unclear as what bits I can use to fabricate these and at the same time use mortise and tenon joints at the corners, as well as a molding bit for the muttins. These windows will be four foot high by two feet wide and use three muttins. Any assistance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Rich

Hi Rich:
CMT and others make sets of router bits do do muntins and doors. The tenons can
be made on the table saw. A long bit of the proper size can be used to cut the
mortise. I suggest cutting the mortise firstthen cut tenons to fit.

Good Luck, Woodnut65

Hi Rich: I had to repair some storm window too. Got the reversable bit from MLCS.
Only it was easier to dowell the corners together than mortise/tennon scheme. However, if you are an experienced woodworker, the mortise/tennon is the way to go.
