Hello,

It's cold here now and the freezing temperature has provided an illustration into the workings of the open bridle joints at the lower rail and stile connection of the upper overhanging fixed window.
There below the joint in question an ice stalagmite has formed from water condensation off of the inside of the glass that had drained onto the rail, down to the corner connection, gone inside down between the tenon and the sides of the open bridle and dropped out of the bottom onto the sloping jam fixture and instead of dripping onto the ground, has frozen in place. I am confident that where this water can flow freely because the joinery is simply pegged and not glued, it can readily dry out leaving the wood at least at the joint undamaged

Upper window


Frozen condensed water formation below there,



Greetings,

Don Wagstaff
