Above are the front and back  view of the alder wood console which after the final assembly.  Below are some detail shots of the carved elements.  There are some minor details to complete, such as to turned globes for the tops of the back posts, hardware, and finishing.  The construction is mortise and tenon, frame and panel and a few dovetails at the top of the carcass.    I use a combination of traditional work methods using hand tools and traditional-leaning work using power tools.
