    Built-In, mantel,and Crown/Baseboard Install - pics

    Over two different Sundays I helped install built-in cabinets, mantel, mud-closet, and book shelf system and also learned to install crown and baseboards. Thought I would show you a couple pictures as my install accomplishemnt this weekend. My mentor Gary made the pieces. These are now installed at my friend Tony's house. He is VERY happy with them. Recessed lighting and coat rack are also installed in the built-in. Hope you like them.

    Mike, this is simply gorgeous, what a craftmanship.
    Wish I had the skills for doing something like this.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Clark, I am even on the south edge of Blomington so even closer. I do not do much turning but if you ever need anything from up here in Bloomington, let me know. You are welcome to stop by and see the shop sometime.

    Great-looking work, Mike. I need to replace our mantel one of these days, so I get inspiration from seeing projects like this one.
