Wood Pecan.

Dimensions for phase 1

8’ long, 16” deep, by 24 3/4 tall
Hickory wood
Cabot fruitwood stain
Lacquer Semigloss finish

This is only phase 1. It will be approximately 7’- 8’ tall when complete depending on how I design the entablature (capital or crown part)
I have most of the pieces cut for phase 2, just have not had the time to complete it, as I’ve been mostly busy doing paying jobs for a little while.
The carving was done with a reciprocating chisel (power chisel), and is a double leaf asiatic jasmine pattern. The carving is stained with a cabot ebony stain left to jell, then sanded around the outside. It is a built in.

Lessons learned on this project.
Blue tape can peel the veneers off of thin veneered plywood. Find a lowtack tape (white tape) for use on thin veneers. Don’t use normal masking tape either as it will leave a residue if left too long. The Low tack tapes do cost more than your normal blue/green tapes though, they are worth it.

(In order to keep from burning the plywood I used a layer of tape around the edging on the top, this tape peeled the veneer.)
