    If You Like Oak

    This was a bare room...not even flooring. I took all kinds of measurements (3 walls), and fabricated the whole room in the shop to the point of having it all assembled, and then taking it apart, delivering it, and installing.

    The apartment was on the 8th floor, and all the tools and parts had to be carried, rolled on dollies, and in and out the elevators. Tools had to be removed at the end of each day. What a PITA. But, the client loved it.

    Not a big fan of oak unless it is quarter sawn but I am impressed. Room does look good. Looks like you did a great job and I would be proud of it if I built it.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Fantastic looking room. Would love to have a room like that. It's almost be like stepping into another dimension in time and space....

    On a scale of one to ten. I will go about a 11. Nice job.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Holy cow!!!!!!
    That is beyond description in my book!!!!!!!
    If that were in my house , if I had built that !!!!

    Man that is a home run! a hole in one! an impossible shot!!!

    You are THE MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Mike, I am not kidding in the least. That is craftsmanship, that is beyond words.

    I cringe each and every time my wife watches one of those DIY shows that paints a room like that.

    Thanks to those that responded. It's nice to hear if projects are a hit or a miss.
