)-- "Getting a glimpse into past construction techniques from over 100 years ago provides insight into modern window construction, which is critical when evaluating construction design challenges. It is remarkable that Creek windows had the same contemporary finger joined locking system as those hand made through out the 1950 and 1960s." states Scott Thompson.
There has not been a lot of advancements between the traditional wood window that was manufactured in the 1950 and 1960 and those that were manufactured back in the mid to late 1800. It is clear that the design of the Creek Windows clearly, obviously originated from Spain. "Which only makes sense" says Scott Thompson, "simple two and one finger joints were made by hand, planing the edges or the center-cut, depending on the design, a channel was then carved to secure the glass in place, and finally hide glue was used to affix the corners together with the glass in place creating a glass pane-frame. Creating one pane of glass framed within a wooden sash, which was then set into the window frame took about 2-3 hours to manufacture. This very same technique originated in from Europe and was brought here by the original Spanish settlers."
