Has anyone come up with a clever way to do window sills? How about some ideas on past projects and pictures. Are they worth the effort?

Thanks for the pictures 007. Since I have a booth setup, I'm trying to save a little elbow space and have the top of the sill go over the lip of the window and not have it come out past the boxed window dressing. Has anyone drilled into that window lip or is that advisable? Any suggestions on how to fasten????????

You can see in first pic the wood cleats suporting sill they are glued to bottom of shelf and the shelf has three screw holes drilled at an angle as you would see in some cabinet construction.
The three screws are screwed into wall just under the metal window frame not thru the metal, best to stay off metal.
There is room to add a wider window sill just add wider support brakets under sill.

If you're out near the factory, stop by Focal Wood Products. Carlyle Lehman makes just about anything you can imagine, and his work is excellent.

His window sills mount higher than Newmar's and hide the window screws, and they stop inside the valence or lambrequins as Newmar calls them.

WARNING! A visit to Carlyle's showroom will cause you to spend your money.

To screw into the wall under the window, will I be getting into wood or metal? I like the idea of topping the ledge and just drill out holes to allow the screws to cover. That way I'm tight to the window. Then build down and fasten to the wall. Thanks for your ideas!
