TPH dictionary: finial
As usual, another unknown designer term has been introduced to me. Finial. Now that this is my umpteenth completely new word/definition combo, I'm starting to get used to the fact that I'm in learning & absorption mode. When Audrey used finial when describing something to me the other day, I actually got excited when I started thinking about the process of looking up what it means and then sharing it with you!
1 : a usually foliated ornament forming an upper extremity especially in Gothic architecture
2 : a crowning ornament or detail (as a decorative knob)
This is a pretty broad definition, so I found two examples of finials to help us understand this thing better. One is stand alone, and the other serves as a resting place for a candle or some other object. They can also be used as bases in lamps!
I like this new word, and I like what it is! Enjoy!
Progress! Mr. Hammer spent another slice of time working on the custom modular shelving project. He finished one 21' wall, end-to-end and top-to-bottom.
He got fancy with the panorama shot, but it was a necessity since it was the only way to capture the whole unit!
Until next time...
