Here is the final photo to wrap up this blog:
My finishing guy let me do the final assembly in his shop so I wouldn’t have to move it twice. Then I took it directly to my friends photo studio where I did the photography. From there my dad helped me move it up to his house where it will stay for a few months until I have a big enough living room to keep it in.
Total building time so far: Just over 150 hours
And here it is!
