Saw this window in internet. I’ve posted this picture which I saw in internet. Very liked it for it’s elegance, old looking, and decided to make it’s replica. Because in the old times all boats ships and stuff for them was made from cedar – I’ve made the same. So there are the matherials – cedar from the store, only hand tools and natural finish. the picture made used the old technology, ONLY two screws for handling it (in the back of the picture). Other – only wooden nails used in it. Picture – canvas, oil.

Shavings and steps of the work will be seen in the next blog!

That is craftmanship. Elegant lines and joinery. Like it a lot.

Love the antique and distressed look. Great design, execution and joinery. It’s more beautiful than the original. Superb work on it.
