After the top rail I prepared the bottom rail and made a start with the pillars.
Al these parts are cnc carved from boxwood and I shaped, steamed and bend them into shape followed by dye them with black ecoline.
The bottom rail was again scraped to create a boxwood line in the middle before finally beewax and polish them.

The pillars is the next step. To fit the I removed parts of the lower rail and in the rear of the pillars to create a robust connection between the two.
Dry fitting below

These will be colored black with ink also, except for the carvings.
Now it is time for the middle rail which is most difficult as it needs to be bended and twisted to create a perfect fit. But that is next time.
As all rails are fitted I will add extra boxwood pillars on the inside to enclosed the rail, this as the kit provided pillars are to thin and fragile.

Hi Nigel, Don, thx for your comments.
No in the kit there is no frame work provided, I will make this myself from boxwood to support the inside of the carvings and the rails.
