Thread: This Qualify as Flatwork?

    This Qualify as Flatwork?

    Hi all,

    I just keep forgetting to stumble by, gotta stick the url

    in the right tool bar.

    Any way this is that elk in the middle of the 30 foot birds eye maple

    and mahogany bar top.

    Should be finished any day now.

    Takes forever to flatten 30 feet.

    Be back when its done.

    That's gorgeous, Per. What's the wood that the mountains are made from? The grain is perfect for the piece.

    Hey Vaughn,

    Bubinga ,birds eye and who the heck knows.

    I buy boxs of cutoffs on that auction site.

    The bubinga, birdseye and walnut we stock in excess but the light stuff that looks

    like sand stone......orphan at the bottom of the box.

    Hey your avatar looks good.

    Well, Per, THAT is beautiful. If the rest of the bar is anywhere near that good, it will be outstanding!

    Brief excuse fellas,

    You might think we work really, really slow.

    The truth of the matter....we do.

    Although we finally got ...are you ready for why my head will

    sometimes spontaneously combust?

    The rough electrical inspection for under the bar.

    Three and a half months and 5 not ready for inspection stickers.

    Baby Cheeses and rice, I was gonna bag and tag somebody.
