Website: OakHillWoodCreations.com

I spent my professional life as a Manufacturing Engineer/Tool Designer.
Precision was part of my daily life.

I have also had an extensive love of fine woodworking. This and my background in engineering led to my designing and building custom furniture for our home such as: tables, desks, and a complete bedroom set.

Now, my wife, Joan, and I want to share our love of precision, handcrafted wood pieces with others.

Thank you for posting the Obelisk. I think it will make a lovely present for my wife, if I can get around to building it. The compound angles may be tricky for the copper, but once finished it will be worth it. Makes a striking addition to the landscape I think.
