Brackets like these are very common in the New Orleans area. Typically a house would have 3-5 of them on the front facade. My team made eight of these for two separate houses. Each bracket has upwards of 30 or 40 separate pieces that we hand cut. The finial (the point on the end) for this bracket was not turned by us, but on some of the later pieces we made we did turn them ourselves. This bracket is approximately 30” long, 18” tall, and 2.25” thick. This was our prototype piece which we made from cypress, but the rest of the ones we made were of spanish cedar.
