wooden bridge in the snow

Here it is, click the image for a big picture.

Last week I finished off my bridge across Padley Brook. This was commissioned in memory of local man Arthur Haslam 1911-2009 and you can see the work in progress here and here The lovely photos were taken by a friend who was working in the area last week, thanks Addo.

And this short video shows what it looked like last Thursday after its final shaping and sanding.

    A bridge is a lovely tribute, to watch the water pass under and remember. Cracking bridge it is too . Merry Christmas :)

    Very nice! I really enjoy your bridges. Love the way you use ached timbers. They have such a rustic earthy feel to them. Fit in so well with the landscape. Which so pretty with the snow right now. Hope to make one something like someday. One thing I have been wondering is do you have a special chain for your saw. It seem from other videos you done that you free-hand rip the beams and rail boards.
