I've got this nice trim job. The window sills(stools) are 1 1/4" x 5" x 96". The sill is varnished Sapele. The trim is a 1" x 4" victorian painted molding.
Our typical paint grade install would be 18g 1 1/4" nailing casing bead into extension jamb. 15g x 2 1/2" on the perimeter of the casing as needed.
15g x 2 1/2" in a decent looking pattern on the sill. Nailing back by the window into the framing. Matching those nails in the front into the apron.
There are (12) of these windows. That is a ton of nail holes thru these beautiful Sapele sills. Does anybody have a legit tryed and true method of fixing sills to framing?
Try Bostiks best cartridge BOSA38910.
I always run a trim head screw or a dry wall screw up through the bottom of the sill into the casing. I know that only helps on the ends but it keep the sill tight to the casing and from ever sagging away from the casing. The apron then covers the screw head.
