I was up to the house on Friday to deliver a couple of things and talk about some more carvings for the job. I was hoping they would be done with her area, but as you can see by the pictures I took that they have a little ways to go yet. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to go back up when its all complete and get more photo’s then. Until then here’s a few photo’s to give you the general idea of things will look in the end

Thanks for having a look and have fun woodworking!

We could move our whole house and workshop into her dressing room! It looks like the house would have enough cabinets to build to keep busy for a lifetime! Your work is gorgeous as usual!

Hey Les, perfect work as always. Love the smalll details on this one, and the finish is awesome. One question…what is the piece in the corner with the tubes? Is that one of yours? Looks different in the pictures, and was wondering what it was for. Another fantastic Les project…love it :>)

Goodness gracious, I’m kind of at a loss for words. I can’t even imagine the planning & execution that went into this piece, one of the most ambitious I’ve seen in a long time. Really incredible.

Jim the wall with the tubes we didn’t make. Its a granite wall and I think the tubes are brass, I didn’t look at it to close. Anyway that is a walk in shower between the two vanities. I think there is glass going on top of the wall. The pulls and stuff came in while I was there Friday for this area. The hardware costs almost as much as my house, really!

I don’t do this all alone we have some awesome builders and finishers that work there. Four builders including myself and two finishers

Thanks to everyone for your kind comments!!
