    The way sash frames used to be made was the timber was profiled first with spindle moulder, then the joint made.

    Now it seems that it's become standard practice to build the frame then apply the profile with a router, with the corners actually done by hand.

    Has this method now become the accepted way, and why is that?

    You can't router first unless diagonal joint is used.
