Metal Handles And Latches For Doors, Drawers, And Gates

Going through my photos I could see that it was time to look at handles
 for doors, drawers and gates to give a few ideas for designers, and builders.

Above are handles for the doors into the Albuquerque Aquarium.

Adobe Domes At The Northern New Mexico College Adobe Program

Some time ago I did the post-
profiling the dome, above, built in El Rito, New Mexico

Since the last post was on adobe hornos
 I thought by extension it would be nice to take a look at domes.

Adobe Hornos Built By The Northern New Mexico College Adobe Program

We were on the El Rito campus of the Northern New Mexico College back in the spring 
and I got some photos of the hornos that had been built 

Having gotten much interest in the recent post-
I thought these ovens would be a nice contrast.

The above photo shows two contrasting styles- 
the traditional one on the right that is found all over northern New Mexico
 and on the left the smaller, lower type that requires less wood to heat up.

Building A Stone And Concrete Bridge

In our frequent trips to Truth or Consequences, New Mexico
 over the last few months I got to know William 
who was doing stonework at the Hay-Yo-Kay Hot Springs.

Part of his work included this very nice stone and concrete bridge 
spanning a channel of hot spring runoff water.
