Exterior Woodwork Repair Videos
(the following methods based on 40 years experience an 30 years of comparative field testing)

click > to begin play, then hover your cursor over the grey line just below the image and click on a time to find these interesting segments:
00:20 intro of the three repairs
01:25 placing the epoxy consolidant
04:45 placing the epoxy paste filler
18:45 extends the life of a paint job out to 20-25 years
24:00 & 28:35 a time trial and unit costing for filling nail holes with epoxy (6 holes per minute, or .17 minutes per hole, direct labor; I would make that .3 minutes per hole for estimating to include cleaning out the holes and a little time for mixing the epoxy, which were not shown in the video)

John,
Good Morning. I am a grad student taking an Historic Preservation course. Suggested linksprovided little for a paper on wood restoration. You have a complete and comprehensive series of how-to's. I would like to include your techniques and cite you in a paper, specifically your technique on window sash repair. OK?

Yes, that's fine to cite me and the methods here for your study and paper.

Here are a couple of series of photos on window sash repairs:

and this one has some captions to go with the photos:

(See Ginger fix her window sash in the slideshow at the right.)

For several comprehensive step-by-step methods of window sash repair I suggest my book, Save America's Windows:

Keep us posted here as you develop your paper. Maybe you can upload a copy of it when you are done.
