Here is my latest project: A “fairy house” with a copper roof surrounded with lots of wood. We mounted it outdoors as a welcome by our front door.
I found this log at a place selling firewood in Plant City, Florida. The rotted knot makes a perfect entrance to a “fairy house” leading into a hollow cavity. It took about three weeks to construct this little work of art. It’s heavier than most that I’ve built because of the solid wood and piles…
The arches in this cypress knee look just like an entryway to an imaginary woodland. So I embellished it to complete the scene.
The inspiration came from my sister in law who collects tea pots and appreciates shells. So, for her birthday I made this fairy house.
