Wink Franks at it again

Some parts on the table for a new spandrel I am building. This one is 15 ft long, and 3ft high. There is about 250 ft of scroll sawing, all done from one piece of 7/8 Poplar, and 250 ft of 1/2 round routing on each side. I turned the spindle posts to fit the curves.
I also posted a picture of the whole house in front, That heart on top is 4ft X4ft and the scroll part is 18 ft long and 7 ft high "lots of fun".
The posts are where the new spandrell will go.The only normal thing I did was the small trim around the two levels

Frank has been a busy body (pun intended). Nice work jigger. I don't have the patience for that much scroll work. Good job.

WOW, says it all! I can't even imagine how you did it, are there any shots taken during the making?

I've done my share of scroll work over the years. My eyes and fingers hurt just looking at your work. Great job though.
