Donniev Posted March 20, 2017 Share Posted March 20, 2017 So right now I know I'm struggling with tenon's, so I've been intentionally doing projects that require them. As shown in the first picture, I blew out a tenon attempting to tweak it cold- oops! Welder will fix it... Had time to kill at the end of the day and gave my first door knocker a try. Next pic is a key holder, with the candle holder in progress, was going to use 1/2" for my scrolls and when I got to that point I realized they looked huge, went with 1/2-1/4" instead. The wall candle holder took me over 4 hours, but I wanted it to look good, so I took my time, especially doing the tenon's since I know I need work there. Joining 8 pieces together took longer than I thought it would, but being that I'm still new I think it came out looking good, except that the scrolls don't match perfectly. Lastly I got these door pulls done a while ago too. This was my first project that needed tenon's, I needed 4, aaaaaand I made 10. Sigh. Handles are 7/8", back plate is 3-14", not sure how thick.
