Hello Everyone,

I am new to the site but would like to share some of my designs and builds. This is a 5’ oil derrick I made for a client in Texas. The derrick is made of rough red cedar and consist of almost 300 pieces. Each piece was cut, hand sanded, pre drilled, and stainless steel nails used, counter sunk. Every joint was also glued. The photos are before urethane but I will post updated photos once finished. Thank you all for looking and look forward to getting to know everyone.
