I have not posted for a while because I have been working on this. The project, on and off has taken two years, but it’s been the main thing since Christmas 2010.
All has been hand made, apart from a bit of routing and the trusty band saw. i didn’t turn the columns as I have no lathe. Timber is pine and beech. The piece weighs a tonne; thank god I didn’t make it all in hard wood, or it would be able to withstand a thermo-nuclear attack, and more to rhe point, be immoveable.
If you want more details on how it was all done, here’s a link to a Facebook album. The comments are made for the lay person, not the serious woodworker who will know it all just from the pics:
I hope that you enjoy looking at the piece. A photo of the chunk of c* that it replaces is also provided for comparison.
