Hey Jim,
These look great. Any more detail on the project? How did you find the profile angles? Are they perfect half circles or did you have to match the exact window angles?

Okay, I just saw your second picture with the semi-circle router setup. I’d like to make something similar to these. What type of finish did you use? How is it holding up?

Hey Brent
This was a paint grade project so I installed it primered. It’s held up fine in the last 4 years. It was a half circle
so all I did was was measure the width and height. I think I might have more details on LJs under projects.

Thanks Jim.
I’m pretty sure I remember this project showing up on LumberJocks. I head back over for another look.

Love your articles! The window frames look authentic in this photo! I am interested purely from a maintenance viewpoint. When I consider the maintenance of timber I now tend to steer away as the overall cost is likely to outweigh the authenticity particularly when the are alternative materials that look equally as good as timber or steel. Of course, if the project brief is to retain authenticity through use of materials then that will outweigh the cost associated with ongoing maintenance.

I am very impressed with this project; I particularly like the desire to retain the original design. These semi circle windows are a fantastic reminder of what I would describe as “Victorian”. These windows were quite specific and beautifully designed. The window treatment is equally important and usually included masses of lace and was quite expensive. The walls were generally “dark” and therefore the windows were highlighted. Just love this look.

The renovation is the great idea to maintain your house beauty for a long time. The number of people is providing the home renovation custom written research papers services locally to the public for the house improvement. Very best of luck to you for your local VA hospital round window contract.
