An unusual window pattern:
And, some frames, raw, lest you think all I do is wander around taking attic window photos.
I like the angled top, and the little muntins at the top. An interesting house, with a fieldstone foundation, porch columns and chimney.
And now, a refuge from the woods, a wild turkey. It appears to be a hen, and what it is doing on my neighbors roof, is a mystery, though it could have to do with sex, and babies, or poults.

It is in the process of being painted; the front part almost done. I find the "sun ray" motif, at the gable tops, especially interesting.
Really, attic windows.
The "finials" at the roof ends, appear to be wood, mortised onto a metal roof "cap". Originally, the house was probably far more colorful, like the first one.
And, now, for something a little different.
A curved top; in frames a spandrelle, and a curved roof, and the many little panes of glass.
I cut rabbets either on the shaper, or using a groover on the table saw. Below is a 1/2 inch groover, sitting on some rough lumber. The dark, perpendicular marks on the board are from the stickering process. As lumber is sawn, ripped to thickness, it is stacked with spacers between boards, called stickers, to allow air to move freely and the board to start the drying process.
The middle image, the drawing, is an example of the design process of a molding profile.
In my walks about my neighborhood, I'm fascinated with the variety of attic windows and Dormers on some of the houses. It is an old neighborhood; there is one house, a few blocks from me, that started as a log cabin, but siding and plaster have transformed it. Mostly I'm intrigued by 19th. and early 20th. century homes. So, along with the Civil War monuments, expect to see some Dormers and attic windows:
This house has been resided, but the attic windows look original, very small double hung windows.
Love the multi-paned window, scroll sawed details, and the ornamental brickwork in the chiminey
