A couple of completed sash - a bear to put all the parts (including weather stripping) back together in the right order since I don't do this often enough to remember. I'm going to write it down before the next re-install - I forgot to put the top stop in before the sides for example... Note that I left some of the cracks - sealed with glass glue. It's nice glass and a few flaws are fitting, and it saved a boatload of time. Cleaned up the fixtures too. The clear finish is McCloskey spar varnish in satin mixed with burnt umber artists oil color, rubbed on.

That's my much improved and much less drafty view out the restored front sash.

Not aiming for perfection - didn't try to fill every surface crack. A vast improvement - this is the sash with the dropped rail. I succeeded in drilling a hole and installing dowels to pull it together per John's recommendation. Wahoo!

Note the horizontal crack - I busted it when pointing so I sealed & left it in.
