A few years ago, I converted the old patio into a sunroom. The vinyl siding was pretty plain, and the overhang of the roof above the door looked unbalanced. I spent the whole summer out under the big tree in the backyard routing rails and stiles in clear cedar.
The pediment over the back door was the pattern. I sized all the others to be in proportion to the one over the back door. However, I didn’t figure on how difficult the little ones would be to raise the panel in a piece so small.
All the panels float within the rails and stiles.
The bracket is made from five pieces of cedar that I cut to the same shape using a straight pattern cutting router bit. I made the curves match that of a piece of crown molding. The edges are beaded.
The backyard sure smelled good that summer! Cedar sawdust!
