My Latest Project...Sometimes I Surprise Myself!

Since I've been making Wedding Card Houses, I got a request to make one for a  Up Themed wedding. It was a few months ago and since the Bride didn't want it in a hurry, I took my time making it, working on it  between other orders. Really I was dragging my heels because I was not looking forward to figuring out how to put the two roofs together. I make my own patterns and I'm totally self taught in my woodworking. I have acquired all  of my workshop tools over the years and enjoy learning to use them. I'm sure I still have a lot to learn. Here are a few pictures of the progress. First I did a few sketches.
Then I made the two sides...

And made porch posts...
Some of my pictures are a bit blurry and I'm having a hard time getting my pictures lined up  tonight, and don't seem to be able to add text below. I think I have a lot to learn about blogger too! Tomorrow is another day!
And I did get the roof!

Both roofs are hinged! This was a fun project! : )
This one is on it's way to California, but I relisted it in my etsy shop here!
