This is one of my biggest projects so far, the entrance way is made of cedar roots with hundreds of scribe fits, it took over six months to complete. The cedar root mantle actually grew around the big stones. What a find, it was eight feet wide. I had a fab shop make some brackets that it hung from, they also made the framing for my root benches.

Wow! That’s amazing – unique, to say the least. Most of us struggle to get a few mortise and tenons joints to fit together consistently on a project. Here, you wouldn’t have two joints the same. Great job and thanks for sharing. Play safe.

A lot of love and attention went into doing all of that. The room it leads into must have a very special purpose. I am in awe with the amount of woodwork in your house. Beautiful work.
