The issue of glazing oak frames is one that can keep timber framers busy arguing into the wee small hours. Of course the problem begins and ends with the nature of oak timber – it’s cut and jointed when it’s green and easy to work, but will shrink and may twist as it dries out over time. Is there a glazing system that can cope effectiveness with such movement and uncertainty and keep the British weather out?

Rebating the oak frame to accept the double glazed units is one of several glazing methods employed. As you can see from this massive gable it is very fiddly and adds considerably to workshop time. Definitely time to switch the music off and concentrate hard!
