This is a outdoor “Nicho”. I designed this is for a meandering path along the landscaped backyard. I made it out of rough cut pine I bought from a sawmill in New Mexico.

Nice project Art, however Idid not know what it meant. So I looked it up,

“nicho is also used as a shortform reference for the Japanese term nichome.” In South America, it is common to see decorative boxes called “nichos” set upon tables and pedestals to display religious icons.

Is this correct for the meaning of your project? I would like to hear more about the itme inside and what it means to you.. Nice work.

in more general terms the word “nicho” = “niche”...

Nice stuff, as usual!

Arthouse, I will be coming to the Fredericksburg area next week to check out some wineries w/ my wife, b/c of our anniversary. Have you done any work on any of them?

I beleive Ken and Millo are both correct. The word also comes from spanish heritage in the New Mexico area as a way of displaying religious items.

Looks cool. I like the grain patterns on the doors, and they have a nice shape. Does it have a roof or is that just a gable facade? Do you mount it to a post? And last, how big is it?
