I did have quite a list of work to be done today but after an hour or so I decided to let myself have a bit of a rest day. Guilt however is a fierce task driver and so in an effort to compromise with myself (mad me?) I decided to spend the afternoon drawing up plans for the making of the many barge (verge) boards needed here. Books and the web have given me a decent idea of what I am after but the practicalities of construction and cost are two factors that need careful consideration. The example pictured above is of a relatively simple design but I feel it will serve as a starting point for the effect I wish to achieve when coupled with finials and other associated woodwork....so its whistle while I whittle!
