A window field can improve the attraction of your property and soften its look.
Begin by measuring the width of the window to find out the dimensions of the window. Ours extending throughout the width of the window, so we minimize two by one and one by six to this dimension.
One in six would be the backside of the field and one in eight shall be the back and front partitions.
The again wall is ready on the backside in a 90-degree angle utilizing wooden glue and deck-mounted screws.
The angle of the entrance face shall be dictated by the quantity of draft on the top cap. Our finish cap is created from a chunk of 1 by eight whose one facet is tapered from 5 and a half inches to 4 inches.
Place the facet of this piece with two 90-degree cuts towards the again of the field in order that the tapered edge is on the entrance, with the slim edge on the backside of the field.
By gluing and screwing this piece, we set up the angle of the entrance cone in order that the entrance face might be fastened to the entire.
One other piece of similar conical form can then be put in on the different finish.
In the course of the field, we arrange a small piece of two by 4 to offer it extra energy earlier than drilling drainage holes each few centimeters alongside the underside.
The vertical cleats that can assist the field and maintain it in opposition to the wall of the home are made one by 4.
We mark and minimize a radius on the backside of our cleats for ornamental functions. Every shim is made up of two items: a chunk 4 inches bigger than the peak of the field and a smaller four-inch piece glued and screwed on the longer one with the decrease edges aligned.
As soon as all components have been sanded, primed and painted, the cleats might be connected to the wall. The field rests on the lip of the cleat for vertical assist and is screwed to the again of the field to connect it to the cleat.
The completed product is each practical and enticing.
