The most difficult piece of this project was the Arches. They are raised panels and the ends where the two points meet had me worried from the word go. I used a raised panel bit and it wanted to rip the wood when the two points met.

In the end the customer was happy and that was the most satisfying.

Thanks Lee, Kolwdwrkr.

The only camera I had at the time was Film at at the time, so this was a scan, but I agree on the detail.

Thanks Joe

Looks good Joe, know about the camera, been there done that so to speak. What timber did you use and how did you finish it?
