Biggest stuff in a long time

This is a project an old friend brought by. Seems a tree fell on a house and took part of the roof. The part of the damage he needed help with was remaking the gingerbread corner brackets.

Here is what he brought in. He needed 5 for the gable end and 2 for the eve side.

One long day of work and this is what you can make with a little thinking. I used 8/4 and 4/4 poplar.

There is still more work to be done, but he is not sure yet what is going to have to be rebuilt.
