We are getting on well with our latest commission – a sign for the new Sylva Wood Centre.
A few months ago I created this visual. Today for the first time we were able to put the main elements together to see how close we were to the original vision. But first we had more woodworking to do.
He you can see me cutting gently curved oak beams that are fixed horizontally onto the shaped posts. We use a bandsaw for this.
Richard is now sanding the beams to clean up any marks from the saw.
And now we have assembled the main parts of the sign for the first time. We spent quite a bit of time arranging the horizontal beams into the best position in relation to the posts. There is still quite a bit of work to do before we can start installation.
