It has been a while since I last posted on this blog.
I hope you have all missed me. 
I'm back.

I am going to try to be more responsible and post more of the special projects that I am working on and I also plan to spread out a bit and write not only about me. I hope to share some of the more interesting and beautiful details I come across daily.

My current project is a pair of garden gates for my own home. Here is a watercolor I just did to illustrate them.

The bottom panel will be solid with the pair of cutouts. the perimeter of the cutouts will be deeply  relieved by hand carving. I may put a curved cap piece on top of the top rail. We'll see how my motivation holds out. The upper panel area will be 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" vertical pieces set on the diagonal with a 2" spacing.

I have recently come upon some salvaged old growth heart redwood beams. That will be my material.

I'll keep you posted.

And, oh yes check out my website
