Temple of heaven- Woodcraft

This is made from pieces of wood from a woodcraft construction kit I bought from the popular book shop more than six months ago. Somehow I kept on postponing it. It seemed to be very easy. Of course, it is easy, but you have to have lot of patience, I think. I started with great enthusiasm and it was taking a good shape, but during the final construction, the pieces kept on falling. I lost my patience and kept it back and somehow I never brought myself to complete it.Finally, today my hubby said he will help me with this and we decided to complete it. It looks so elegant that it is certainly worth the patience and efforts you put into it.


I am also planning to colour it. Will update the post with the painted pictures when I do it and if I do it!!!
