Making Wooden Storm Windows is a fun & intense, three-day, hands-on learning experience. Students will learn how to make wooden storm windows.
You will be part of a team building exterior storms for the windows for a home located in the Central Park National Historic District in Hannibal, Mo.
This is a tuition-based class with a limit of 10 students. You will be working side-by-side all three days in the shop with instructor Bob Yapp. Bob has been a woodworker and furniture designer/maker for 45 years.
This is an intense, learn-by-doing opportunity. You will learn why wood storms are important, how to measure an opening for a storm, how to grade/pick lumber, storm sash construction, glass/screen installation weather-stripping & installation techniques. We will be constructing two types of storm windows:
1) Traditional wood storms with puttied glass.
2) Combination wood storm/screen sash with removable screen and glass from the inside of the property.
At the end of the three days you will know from beginning to end, how to completely build both types of wooden storm windows. All students completing the class will receive a “Certificate of Completion” & a jump drive with back-up materials.
Homeowners, small contractors, preservation staff, preservation commission members, hp students and historic building owners will all benefit from this hands-on, traditional training event. All skill levels are encouraged to sign up.
Tuition for this three-day workshop is $450 and includes morning coffee/snacks, beverages and a gourmet lunch. Space is limited to 10 students in each session and pre-registration is required to secure a spot in the class.
