this one looks right at home
and this is a big one .. probably just under 300 pounds. the stone (another +/- 500 pounds), will be cut and fitted in new york ...
specifications included : " must support dancers" .. sounds like fun.
it had a nice dark bronze patina and some decorative screw details in the top frame ..
and we've got a pair of stools waiting for the final stain color approval. they'll be upholstered by the designer's workroom in massachusetts .. tougher than they look ...
and we're coming down the home stretch on the kitchen project. it's starting to look like the model. we're awaiting appliances and counter tops, which should be arriving sometime in the next few weeks.
there will be a mirror and some sconces in the big open space. the horizontal shelf over the sink area is just for our convenience as we built it.
and upstairs, there's a quartered oak vanity/shelf unit .. steel pipe supports on the end later.
and downstairs, a barnboard vanity for the half bath.
coming up, some living room shelves involving a barn beam from the renovation and a bunch of 3" thick torsion box shelves ... should be interesting.
and a baby gate !! i haven't made one for about 30 years now ...
and i never made one that wasn't a piece of painted plywood with a poster on it ... this one is gonna look official!
and sam's busy ... along with the railings he finished recently, above and below, he is coming down the home stretch on a major project at the local church downtown. more on that later ...
jig for building the railings
3 floors on this project ... fussy figuring ...
and our friend rachel turned 70 last week. big party last sunday. people we haven't seen in a long time. we made her one of our garolite and zebra wood 'life event' coasters. kit said i should have made 'a dozen of them' . we're gettin' up there.
all for now
