I looked at a lot of options for making the bend in the arches and found a kit through home depot for $25 that works great.

The harder part looks like it will be the molding that will fit inside and then around the door. I found some flexible stuff for the inside and then googled and will try the polyurethane molding with some special cuts to make the trim work out. Almost done with drywall sanding and then will move back to flooring.

Home made jam from sand plums. They are about the size of cherries. In addition to being excellent for jam or jelly they are also fun to eat straight off the bush. Screenshot_20190607-133343_Gallery.jpegScreenshot_20190607-133325_Gallery.jpeg

I had a taste for doughnuts, Krispy Kreme style. They are at their best with a glaze, but the glazed ones didn't last long enough to snap a photo.

I was notified that another carving has sold, so I finally felt like doing another carving and got it finished a week ago. I sometimes hate to see them sell because I never get to see them again. Lol This guy has only one eye.

Awesome work! Your pieces remind me of the stone work that a stone artist shows at the Arizona Fine Art Expo every winter.
