Today we are making an anniversary house panel for the House of Windy
Now that we have milled all of the cedar, cut our mortise and tenon joints and drilled the holes for the dowling so the panel won’t be likely to warp, we can now prepare to glue the panel together.
Now that everything is glued together and tight, it’s time to work on the patterns for casting two bronze salmon leaping towards the center of the panel. And here in the center of the panel you can see the pattern which has been made for casting a brilliant bronze sun to greet your family each morning with golden rays bringing warm hues into your home. Once cast, the bronze sun and happy jumping salmon will be mounted upon the cedar panel and finished with a hand-applied finish to bring out the true tones of the cedar wood. May the sun shine forever in your wonderful house with many blessings.
