Description

This acorn finial is a decorative item turned for the apex of an hexagonal summerhouse roof, the type that has a right angle at the back to fit in a square corner, then four sides at the front. A photo fo the building appears below. The customers asked for a large finial to cap their roof off, so this one is the largest I have made to date.

Given the requested dimensions, the base was turned from three pieces of ash, the largest being 14 inches in diameter, then 10", then 6". The top was turned from a single block of cedar. Ideally the whole piece would be turned from cedar, but it is difficult to source cedar wide enough and deep enough. The whole is to be painted by the customer, so it should be quite weatherproofed.
