We have started sorting out the planks of Oak and selecting the best ones to do the frames in the windows.

The four back windows are very similar in size and style so we decided to start with them. We have selected sixteen pieces in two groups of sizes (one for the vertical and one for the horizontal). All these pieces are now planed.

We are using a thickener machine which is designed to plane planks with parallel surfaces but we have discovered that our machine is not absolutely flat! We will see how these pieces turn out in practice and see the finished results before doing something about the machine like get a new one!

But first we have to wait for the rain to stop and the glass (double glazing units) to arrive!
