1920's Wood Screens

A number of people have asked me to post more pictures of the construction details of my wood screens. Here goes - some of the photos are pre-rehab, some midway, some as the paint dries.

A few items of note.....

The PO got the paint on the screens, not me :-)

The screens lay on top of the frame and are held in place by a three bead "screen mould." These strips can be found in old style lumberyards....I also saw them listed in Rejuvenation's Millwork Catalog. Next year, I plan on replacing the screens.

The frame of my windows is essentially the same as the wood storm windows (frame thickness & design)
