2 woodworking projects for my beautiful girl’s wedding and shameless sharing of one of the proudest moments of my life.
The cross is very simple half lapped with a wedged tenon through mortised into the half lapped base and painted white with a teal chalky base. The bridal arch/doors are a simple 2×6 frame with a palletwood stop that is distressed and stained a “Weathered Gray.” The doors are mismatched 28” and very distressed per the bride’s wishes, then I built a simple pallet wood flower box that fit across the top which my other daughter painted with “Here Comes the Bride” on one side and “Happily Ever After” on the other and then I lacquered over it. The flower arrangement turned out great!
On a personal note in addition to woodworking props for the outdoor wedding I also got to walk her down the aisle and give her away to an awesome new son! Oh, and I also performed the ceremony… I’m tired now… (and broke!)
