This was a custom design for a restaurant. they ordered 6 of them an they all had to fit in one crate. It measures 3/4” thick x 18” wide x 4’ long The fret work is made of Poplar, the balls and dowels are birch. It took me 6 hours to design the spandrel. This is a finished product. The contractor will get it stained or painted. I never get to see the completed project unless they send me some pictures. Because a spandrel is a symmetrical design you only draw half and make two of each design. By the way this was not done on a CNC. The template was cut on a scroll saw then, with the template I used an inverted pin router to cut out the actual parts. Hope you guys like it. Thanks for looking.

-- Have a great day.

Nice work. Kinda sucks that you don’t always get to see your work finished.
AT first I thought that your picture was blurry until I realized that you had more than one packed into the box.

It’s really nice and will the restaurant a lot of personality.
