The local museum was fixing up their exterior and asked me to make these porch brackets for them. They sent me a scale drawing and off to the races.

Used 5/4 Poplar and went thru I don’t know how many band saw blades, but they are done. Installed and making the museum proud.

And of course Pozar the shop dog was there to supervise the project.

Nope its all cut with the scroll saw and the bandsaw. One of these days when I win the Lumberjock Lottery I’ll have a CNC ;-)

The brackets turned out great-any chance you have a picture of them installed?

Thanks for sharing.

As a woodworker with a degree in museum management – thank you for supporting your local museum – in more ways than one. LOL

Like rtbrmb above, I would also enjoy seeing a picture of the installation.

Great job, thanks for sharing.
