    Curved wall with stacked windows

    I needed to get a fair curve on the window liners

    Installed the liners full depth , held in place temporarily with plywood blocks

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]
    Rigged up a full size trammel and scribed the radius on the inside of the liners

    After scribing the curve on the bottoms I used them as a template to cut the rest of the tops / bottoms for each set with a pattern cutting router bit

    [​IMG]


    Liners installed I set about bending and laminating the trims

    This is a test run for the applied stool

    [​IMG]

    Actual glue up of the stool using a plywood clamp system

    [​IMG]

    Out of the clamps the next day for a bit of sanding and dimensioning

    [​IMG]

    Close up of the re-assembled pieces , 4 @ 3/8" x 1 1/16"

    Verticle grain is quarter sawn correct? I guess quarter sawn is more of a hardwood term. I would love to get my hands on some old growth. I might have some questions for you soon. Im building some slight radius archway panels in a few weeks.

    OZ ... did you personally do that trim work (or your trim man) ? That is difficult stuff to do and looks like it was very well done too.

    SUPER kudos to whomever did it ... very nice work. Hard to find that kind of craftsmanship here in Atlanta.

    Not necessarily quarter sawn , but the logs are cut to have the vertical grain rather than the flat grain presented across the width of the board

    Pm me anytime

    WOW ... very impressed ... :D You only see that kind of quality here in $3 mill and up houses and maybe not even then.

    You remind me of my buddy, John (he was like a brother) who was helping me on my 15 year house project here. He could do everything well. He fell off a ladder 2 years ago on another job (2 weeks before his 50th birthday) on a hot summer day, hit his head on an outdoor A/C unit and died on the spot. Very sad day it was.

    Since then I have had to do everything myself with the help of my mexican helper buddy that I have trained from a superb painter to a carpenter and trim man. It takes us 3 times as long and the quality is not 100% of what John did, but we try.

    As I have gotten older, my hands are not as good as they used to be ... but I have to finish this job in the next 12 months to move on when my wife retires.

    Its a shame you don't live closer as I have a lot of super quality tools (all types) that I need to dispose of when I am finished here.

    You do excellent work (craftsman quality) my friend ... :D

    I appreciate the kind words but keep in mind I've been paid to practice this stuff for the last 25 years , I'm more impressed by the great results shown in this thread from guys taking these projects on during weekends

    Blown away man! That's all we do here in Austin(window crap,3rd generation carpenter), your work is exceptional. The average fellow has no idea what goes into that type of finish. Kudos.

    So, we want to have our outside front lights to come on whenever the sun goes down. Currently all 3 are wired to one switch by the front door. Is there a way to do this? Anyone have suggestions for a sensor of sorts?
