These are really nice! I love gothic architecture so this is right up my ally. If I were to design it I would likely use sketchup too or vcarve pro for cnc design software. I’d love to hear ome of the construction details on how you put this together.
Thanks for posing.

I don’t have access to a cnc machine. But it seems like we used all the tools on this one. I put together a build album but lumberjocks seems like it stops at 6 pictures. I put it up on imgur. If you want to see it: http://imgur.com/a/n94JU#0

Your slide show of the build is amazing ! I would not have guessed so many little steps. It gives me a new look on the finished project. For example, I had not noticed the bases of the arches in pic 3 are actually end-grain which means it 6 pieces where the eye only sees 1. In one of the pictures, you put the maple blocks in the cooler ; was there a reason why the cold would help ?
Anyway, amazing job !
About Sketchup, I use it too all the time. But I have trouble mastering curved parts. Did you use the pro version ?

I use Sketchup as well, its very versatile, I use it for lots of diffenret projects, not just wood work!

Francois,The cooler is just a convenient thing to move pieces around. When you have so many, it is easy for them to knock over and get a corner bashed in. I’ve found the styrofoam coolers to be perfect carriers.

Very clever indeed the cooler thing… Thanks.

I use sketch up as well but you certainly look like you master it much more.
