For my beautiful 1930s home I was looking for new window sills for a long time. Window sills with a nice sturdy authentic look. Via the I came up with the idea to make them myself using oak carpentry panels. Result; beautiful oak window sills for my 1930s home. Window sills in the bay window of the living room and also in a bedroom and study.

Solid oak window sills

Living room; The bay window actually has 3 surfaces; - A middle part with size 206 * 27 * 2.6 - Left side with size 75 * 27 * 2.6 - Right side 78 * 27 * 2.6 A shelf can be used for the middle part, for the left and right side I have a shelf sawn in half. I also did some sawing work because of the corners that there are here. I thought buying this shelf in its entirety for the windowsill was too risky. The house is flat and crooked and measuring everything was impossible. Splitting it into 3 planes was the right solution. For the corners I first made a kind of mold with cardboard. I marked these on the wooden planks, after which I could saw it off with the saw. I was able to buy 2 custom oak panels for the study and bedroom. There are no crooked walls or complicated corners here. I painted the windowsills with Rambo armor varnish transparent matt colorless. Then the window sills were fixed with mounting sealant and the seams were also provided with a sealant filling. I am very pleased with the end result, it has become really beautiful. It is also a project for which you do not have to be very handy, you have to be able to work very accurately since I had to cut some corners in the shelf.
