Save Your Wooden Windows
Don't make the mistake of throwing away your original wooden windows when you're upgrading or restoring your house. With the aid of preservationist John Leeke's SAVE AMERICA'S WINDOWS (140pp, $30) you can bring them back to life. And when you finish they'll look far better than modern replacement ones.
