I designed a window insert to simplify the air handling. 5mm plywood from Home Depot. Now trying to figure out the best way to glue and paint.


#2

That’s pretty cool! It’s great how the tool itself can offer up so many ways to improve the tool. :slight_smile:

How are you planning on sealing your various joints to avoid any air leakage?


#3

Brilliant!


#4

We are going to seal it. It’ll be up to the wife on if she wants to paint it or stain it. Either clear or white silicon. This will be on a front facing window to the house, that’s why so much work to make it a nice looking design versus just a hole in a board.


#5

Wow, that really is a great looking louvered insert! :grinning:


#6

Really nice job on this.


#7

Aw, geez. Now the rest of us are going to have to step up :slight_smile:


#8

Hahaha! Hole in a board. You certainly stepped up to the challenge. Paint and weather stripping and that’s as good as it gets. :sunglasses:


#9

That is so awesome! I was just thinking about doing something like that for mine! Where I live, I’d have to work out a bead channel to install a screen to keep the bugs out.


#10

Finished and installed. Works great!


#11

Show off :wink:

Really nice. Really really nice design. Looks great. You’ve raised the bar for out the window vents. :grinning:


#12

that looks way better than my piece of MDF with a crapload of foil tape sealing it shut to the window frame.


#13

Yeah, that turned out very nicely! Very unnoticeable. :+1:
