Thanks for taking the time to make this blog! I enjoyed seeing all the steps in building this great looking sconce!

Beautiful work and, thank you very much for all of the pictures.

I have a question, if you don’t mind. When cutting the curve on the ends of the straps with the flush cut router bit, how are you controlling the cut?

I used combination flush trim bit with two ball bearings and radius template (Jig 1). This jigs plan and description
contains in the Darrel Pearts book ” In the Greene and Greene style” (p.59-72) .

Have your say...
