I'm an economist working in Automotive but I like wood and things made out of it.
I like cars, hawks (I used to keep a few of them) , Japan and japanese stuff, knives and bows and arrows. I'm on a way to make as much as I could things of solid wood. Especially Black Locust.

This is something that I have made last summer. It is made out of Black Locust, the wood that I admire and adore.This should last for years. It is one of my first projects that I have done and I can tell you that I’m very proud of it because I’m not a woodworker by profession.
It’s a combination of the hardest wood around my area and wrought steel.

Locust posts

Prepared post holders

Mounted holders. There is one hole per side. There is a 8mm screw per each hole.

Prepared finish.

Hilti anchor fixing

This piece of Locust dowel was cut and used as a screw cover. It was hand made out of selected board in that way which should insure the least movement and expansion of the part.

One of the quarter sawn Locust boards. Not bad.This boards are about 20 years old. And as you can suppose they are intact. Bugs free.

Completed fence on a not completed house :)

All suggestions are welcome because I’m preparing similar project for the stairs. I do not want to do something wrong twice :)
