To the windows! To the walls! Special collections’ windows are finally more than holes in the walls! Our local woodworking experts, Jim and Louis, have expertly crafted window insets to mirror the way the original interior windows look. To do this, they chose the appropriate wood and melded together various pieces so that the new wooden pieces would like just like the older ones. Here, they are sawing the molding down to size.
The interior windows, between the Special Collections office and the Reading Room, will be highly visible so close attention was paid on making sure the woodwork aligned closely with the larger windows.
With the window insets completed, the work this week has been fast-paced! In the next blog post, you’ll be able to see how all of the hard work is coming closer to being successfully completed! As always, you may find us in our temporary location of Room 220, and open Monday – Thursday, 9 am – 5 pm.
