The project started with my being given the wood and a rather blurry photocopy. I pulled in details from the book: Pugin's Gothic Ornament (Dover Publications Inc. Feb 1989. ISBN-10: 9780486255002 ISBN-13: 978-0486255002). August Pugin was the great Victorian artist/architect, probably best known for his neo-Gothic-style work on the Houses of Parliament.
In this first lesson in the series, I introduce and describe the project. For subscribing members, below is my working drawing and tool list of the Victorian Gothic Lintel carvings.
