Awnings On

Why is it that every time you think something is going to be a snap, it always turns out to be so much more. Awnings, I thought--no problemo! All I need is a simple triangular shape, right?

Maybe I was trying to make it more complicated than it needed to be. I tried a few "triangular" designs, but wasn't happy with any of them.

I finally settled on having simple overhangs. I used basswood wrapped in green canvas. They were attached using wood glue. I wasn't sure if they would stay, but they seem very secure today. Miracle glue I say!


  1. Thank you! I just checked out your blog and it's really nice too :)

  2. Wow. Your roof looks GREAT! Love the awnings too.
    They are perfect!
