I decided to make two to ride along side each other mirroring the images of each . A truly poetic intersection of art and nature interacting with the wind,sun and water all in concert together. I made the frame out of white oak because it was the strongest outdoor wood in the sixteen foot length I needed. Cypress is to soft for the strength I needed to uphold the weight of the stain glass. So I locked dado the angled joints and used waterproof glue with a dowel thru the center for maximum strength. All this and Heaven too.
