- Tongue & Groove wood boards
- 1 1/2" wood screws

- Tape measure
- pencil
- Cross cut saw
- Drill/Driver, with bit for screw heads, with twist bit to drill shank holes for screws
- Rabbet plane, table saw, or router & bit to cut rabbets on side strips

- Measure opening
- Cut boards to length, 1/4" to 1/2" less than the distance from jamb to jamb
- Cut and rabbet side strips
- Set side strips into parting bead grooves in jambs
- Set each board in place against the side strips, be sure tongue & groove joint is engaged, and screw into place

The strips and boards do not touch any frame, stop or sill surfaces that are painted or finished. The boards and method are clean and create no dust to fall on a freshly painted sill.

This method uses materials and details that are "modular" and will work on a wide variety of window sizes, especially if the side strips are made 3 to 5" wide.
