No, this was not my halloween prop entry! This is actually a commissioned piece that a customer wanted for himself. He is a healthy eighty years old, but is getting all his affairs in order now. When he first asked me to build it, I told him we were not going to have that conversation because he didn’t need one. A month later, he asked me again. Since the morbidity factor had been addressed earlier, I was a little more willing to talk about it. Actually, once I took the project on, it was a great opportunity for creative expression. He was really fun to deal with, he didn’t have many specific requests or requirements, except when he asked for a skylight or a window on the side to look out of !!!! I can’t think of a time that I have felt a higher compliment then when he asked me to do this for him.
