1918 Carriage house restoration in Seattle. The first lodging for the people to live in while their mansion was being built. 3 bdrm 2 bath & room for 3 cars or 6 horses. The car? A 79 Porsche RSR. Like a big block in a go cart!!! The porch I built replicating what I call a dragon mouth a detail from other beam ends to the front of the house, no visible fasteners! Shame to paint it huh. Check out the roofing, way over the top!

I think pine is beautiful when the grain is nice and tight, it is a shame to paint over it’s natural beauty.

This is kiln dried clear Douglas fir resized from 4×6 to 3×5 to make the proportions work better. I drilled the 1 1/2” hole on the drill press then cut the angle. All radiuses 1/4” It does look like pine tho. Thanks

We live in a log home with metal awnings. Makes me think about tearing mine off and making some wood.

Great curves! Oh, and btw, shhh, let’s keep Seattle a secret… Not many people know the great assortment of woods we have here! And, is that bamboo I spy in that pic?? Nice!!
