Steps to window repair

This post is a number of small videos showing the different steps involved with redoing a old window. I’m using the linseed oil method. First I remove all the glazing that is loose then is apply shellac to the rabbits. I bed the rabbit with glazing and install the new window. I paint the old glazing that needs to be repaired with a slurry mix of linseed oil putty and raw linseed oil at this point you can fix the defects with the putty. Once the window is glazed it is painted right away.
