This is a project that mom had in mind, but she wanted it rather different than what we finally made. She wanted the central panel to be removable to allow for taking the big pieces of furniture in and out of the first floor (the stairs are waaaay too tight as of now). It took me a whole week to convince her that we needed openings, as the light level with these would drop to about 50% lower. In the end she let me do it the way I knew it had to be done: the full panel to the right opens like a door, and it includes a window. The left panel also includes a window. They both open towards the top. I will cast and fit a metal pulley to the central opening when I go back there ;)
1: the finished project.
2: before, with my sweetheart to the left and the frame of the right panel in place. We had already removed the old, boring fence.
3: the right panel, which is a door with a window.
4: mom dying the right panel with walnut husk.
5: yours truly fitting the first left panel slats.
The frames were done using reclaimed local pine, that we surfaced 4 sides, clamped, and glued with keying pins. The slats are local pine that we bought rough, planed, cut, nailed and dyed once installed. I don’t have detail pictures as of now (and I have a lil trouble uploading the pictures, despite my 24 MBPS connection) but will add ASAP.
In the end mom was very happy with the results, daddy too. But they were even more impressed with my syrup-preserved figs with Moscatel (a spanish cocktail wine that rocks your socks) :D
