    another gilding projest I did

    This was done over a period of one year.
    15 Crown and Freeze molding 7'x12" ea.
    1800 linner feet of trim
    9 pilasters and capitals
    34 2'x2' coffer ceiling tiles
    We painted 1/4" 4x8's massonite boards black and applied the trim. Gilded everything else. The only part not done in the shop was the fire place wall which had everything attached.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Nice room. Very plain and simple...almost stark in its barren state.

    That's awesome work, Dave. I see pics of work like that and I'm amazed not only by the work, but by the fact that people actually have rooms like that.

    sure is amazing to see what a professional can do in the many facets of woodworking and finishing.. makes those of us that are amateurs, able to see and hopefully respect those better than us.

    Here are a few more of the room and a look at the finished room. Plus Jarrod checking out my handy work. Jarrod did the pickets all of them in the main hall. He gilded 8 flutes on each picket.

    Larry I would not say better, If you did this kind of work the opportunities would arise. I just practice at it as a living.

    All very elegant. House and your work.
    But Jarrod, somehow, looks out of place there.

    You did that all onsite? I was thinking you did all the pieces in your shop, then they were installed. Dang, I'm even that much more amazed and impressed, Dave.

    So...I'm guessing the house is just a little 2-bedroom fixer-upper in Maryland? (It's so fancy, they have doormats on the doormats to keep the doormats clean.)
