Album of the window frame I am making
I obtained the teak from a 1968 Egg Harbor 37 being crushed at the marina. These are 1" thick teak boards had been used in the rear deck.
I did some resawing, shaping, sanding.
I drilled 2 holes in each corner of the frame and glued in 1/4" by 2.5" SS threaded rod.
The glue I used is PL Premium, some mixed with teak sanding dust. And it sticks well to the teak.
It has a 1" overlap all around. The top SS hinge, I will put a piece of PVC fabric to keep out the rain. I will also put some fuzzy stick on door seal on the boat's frame to help keep out water.
Outside will be painted, inside will be bright clear sealed. I plan to leave the brown look, no bleaching to yellow, which is a better match for the interior woodwork.
At the top in the frame will be mounted a wiper motor, so It will lift up with the window.
Only a tablesaw I used and various sanders. These are front side views, the backside is rabbeted to fit into the original boat window frame.
This center window was much larger than the 2 side windows, so wont be missing a few inches of viewable area taken up by the wood in this glass frame. It is sitting on the broken laminated glass I took out, so was good to use as a template.
