Brace curves are cut!

Earlier in the year, we bartered some elm and cherry for access to Chris Caudill's deluxe bandsaw. Chris is a local amateur woodworker, and we appreciate his help.

We used his bandsaw to cut curves into all of the knee braces. They turned out great!

Its good to see the knee braces completely finished. The lighter colored braces came from an elm tree that grew at PCEI. The darker braces came from elm in East City Park. All of these elm died from disease.

They will look stunning and live on in the PCEI Artists' studio!
