Scroll down to see how its made, obviously they have never heard of hourly rates :U

Each piece is individually turned and fitted together if I understand it correctly

What they said.

And to quote (or paraphrase) Richard Raffan, "The first 2000 are the hardest."

Cheers,

Interesting reading Hughie, especially in light of current events . :2tsup:
Texas turner S. Gary Robert's book, Masterful Woodturning describes and illustrates a music box project that incorporates mashrabeya.
In a sidebar he mentions that mashrabeya was used to enclose
unglazed earthenware water bottles placed in windows to cool the air that ventilates houses in the hot desert climate of Egypt.
A well made piece of grillwork might have as many as 2000 pieces in it . If one enjoys complexity this might be just the thing.
