Curtain Rod Corbells: These pieces were made to hold the curtain rod and be a shelf support for a shelf above the picture window. They’re 9 inches high, 6 1/2 inches deep, and 2 inches thick. The wood is basswood. The stain is an Early American Minwax stain mixed with a little Red Oak to match the existing aged molding on the window. There will be one on each side of the window and the third will be in the center going up the wall, not hanging down. The shelf will be a 1×8 so it will be a 7 1/4 deep shelf the length of the window plus an inch or two overhang on each side. Just another dust collector in the house. And now I can finally put up those curtains I bought a long time ago. The neighbors should be happier now.

Lovely carving! It looks almost fake, which is a back-handed compliment, but really you did a remarkable matching job between the three carvings.

Justin,

I really like them. Are they hand carved or CNC? Thanks for sharing.
