  • Window Screens

    I am pricing out a little project to build eight window screens. How do you like to attach the screening? Attach it right to the frame and cover it with screen bead? Rabbet? Rabbet with 1/8" x 1/8" groove for splines? Etc.? If you like to do the groove and spline, how do you like to cut the groove?

    ​Thanks in advance.

    I have not much idea about it. Well, I have read somewhere that the groove would be the best choice.

      Just seeing this now.

      All depends on the look. Personally I like aluminum frames custom manufactured locally by a window shop that I can get in most any color. To me that's the best option but if wood is what they want then wood it will be.

      I'd grove with a table saw for the spine and then assemble the frames.

        Why are you asking the same question again? Or, why did you start a duplicate thread? I thought that there were many responses to that thread.

          Jason,

          I accidentally put up a duplicate post.

            Sorry.....I just thought maybe we were being too slow with answers. Although after visiting your website, I think that your quality will shine through and it will work out, if it didn't already.

              Jason,

              Thanks for the kind words. The screens are built and painted. I just have to install the screening and do the little half round moulding detail

              My apologies for my clumsiness on the keyboard.

                So, how did you end up doing them? I missed that, if you said it already. You never know what a customer will ask you to do, so its nice to keep an idea in mind....
