    Default Recent Gazebo Project

    Here are a few photos from a recent project. Posts are 10' tall and the header beam on top of posts is 15' in diameter. I used the indexer for some of the detail parts. Original house was built in 1876 and this had to match the existing front porch details.

    The arch pieces between the posts were a bit of a challenge. They were on a radius to the center of the gazebo and also curved downward. I used 5 "stations" on the CNC table to carve them.

    Yes , the roof is standing seam copper. I did not do the copper roof; the contractor did a fantastic job on it. It really added to the project. The table setup looks like chaos....but its all about repeatable and predictable results. There were 10 right hand and 10 left hand compound radius parts to make for the arches. I tend to reuse scraps for setup pieces as shown in the photo. Everything was drawn up in Aspire. I don't post much of my stuff ; just thought that this might trigger some ideas for others. The indexer got a good workout on this project as well. I made about 400 of those 'triangular darts' for the spindle cross sections on the railings. They appear on both sides as they do on the original front porch.
