Thanks to Google Analytics, I learned today that the woven branch style is also popular in Russia, where it’s called “перила из веток”. According to Google Translate, this means ‘Railing of the Branches’ which seems to me to be a great description of the style. Of course, it figures that in a place with such a large amount of forest, and a grand tradition of log homes and woodworking, that this would also be a popular style. And, there’s plenty of time in the winter to work on these kinds of crafts!
This picture is a sample of Russian craftsmanship. I’m curious to know what kind of wood they used. I have absolutely no idea how to pronounce перила из веток but I would like to try! I’d also like to hear the thoughts of all my Russian readers in the comments section!
