Thanks, guys.

mjbach, the house is pretty standard-issue. I didn't do any design or other kinds of work on it at all. It's my wife's domain, pretty much.

I finally put up the candle-holder thing on the big wall. It has 28 real candles on it that I've hollowed out to accommodate flickering LED lights. It's pretty convincing. When I walked out there the first time, it seemed like somebody ought to be giving me a back massage or absolution for my sins. It's both spa-like and church-like.

Here's night and day:

That's a lovely space you've created.

Any reason why you didn't continue the gothic arch theme in the candle-holder thing?

Thanks.

Matthewjb, there is some of the Gothic arch in the candle thing at the top, where the two roof-shaped pieces are curved -- although it looks in the pictures like it's just two straight lines. I don't remember if I thought about doing the lateral pieces in the same Gothic arch shape -- although I know I already kind of thought I'd repeated it enough in the gate. I'm not sure if it's good design or not, but it was easier to simply do the continuous arch on those pieces.

It was the top bit that looked straight to me. I guess it's the camera angle.

The continuous curves of the candle holders looks good and you get a lot of light in the area.

Googling 'Gothic candle' bought up this design in case you're bored and want to make something for the other wall

Jack, I'm curious as to how you ran power to the "candelabra?" I saw your wiring thread on welding web - but am referring to power from the outlet.

aggierailroad, I have a pair of 3v power supplies -- each feeds half the light set. They're plugged into a switched outlet with wire running down along the edge/underside of the deck and up through one of the pillars, then sneaking around the back of the wooden frieze thing and into holes drilled in the backside of the frame.

Matthewjb, I agree that they look straight. It's odd, since they're made from the piece of steel on the left in this image.



My memory was that it's actually a tighter curve than the pergola's main arch pieces -- but I think I must be wrong about that.

Jack, the deck came out fantastic! Looks really great. Makes me want to create some kind of shade for ours. Granted it will never be as nice as yours lol.


Also I just ordered a Cameo the other night finally. I cant wait to start cutting my own stickers.

How does the heat transfer hold up to washing? I could see making some shirts with the kids being fun.

Conor, I've done a few shirts and have had mixed success. Granted, I've been using already-used shirts, but I think the issue I've had (smaller pieces coming off in the wash) has also had to do with not getting consistent heat across the surface of the decal. I think it's probably possible to have too much, as well as too little, heat. There are commercial heating press things available for lots of money. My thinking has been to maybe try out a $20 electric griddle for the job. But I haven't tried that yet.

I've been trying to avoid doing all the web-page-building to have the pictures of the deck build available for sending to family members and such. So last night, I added the pictures to a Home & Garden 'rate my space' page. I wonder if someone could click on this link and tell me if the the pictures are showing up.

Home & Garden Link

I keep getting a message that the uploads need administrative approval, but it also looks like it's up and available. Could someone just click and confirm? (I don't think it needs any registration or anything.)

Yep...the site is working! Beautiful work, as usual. I'll bet you and your family will have a lot of relaxing times out on that patio.

That was kind of my worry. I'm going to try and cut some vinyl stickers and apply them to the back of a silkscreen and try that out. I found a kit on amazon that includes the 12" screen, squeegee and paint for just under $40.00. If it works it should be perfect (and cheap) for creating professional looking and lasting shirts pretty easily.

Everything worked fine for me.

Jack......if you would, could you go outside of your property at night, after dark, and snap a pic of what the shadecloth looks like lit up? I'm just curious.

Looks great Jack.

I suppose putting a giant flat screen tv out there would disturb the "Wa" in it's cathedral-like atmosphere, but I'd have to do that to enjoy watching Dodgers game out there.
