  3. Home Made RV Trailer

    Here I want to share with you a project I built several years ago. Recently, when I saw these pictures, I spontaniously said that I should share them with my LJ's friends.

    This is a stairwell barrier that I designed and built based on a Japanese torii gate. It is made of black walnut, black walnut veneered panels, brushed steel, and 1/2" tempered glass.
