Leadlight Windows

These photos represent side projects that went hand in hand with building our mud-brick home. Firstly, Cathy's leadlight windows, and secondly the conversion of two lovely old heavily painted church pews to our dining room refectory table. Finally, my father made a leadlight window for his grandson James' bedroom wall, but died before being able to make one for Anthony.

 

Cut leadlight for windows being laid out prior to being leaded together.

Leadlight, made by his grandfather, in James' room. This was three bricks' high, compared to the two-brick height of the other windows shown above.

 

Early view of a pew, to be stripped and turned into our refectory table and benches. Photos of the finished article are seen elsewhere around this site.
