This an office we did in 2007. All the crown, base, casing, doors and columns is done in walnut. The crown in about 80% of the rooms is 17” tall and consists of six pieces. The base is 12” tall and is done in two pieces. The columns have 1” half round for panels. The two main office book case’s had adjustible shelving with lights in each in the bottom of each shelf. The main lobby has all of the above plus matched Macassar Ebony wall paneling. The front wall of the lobby is part of hugh fish tank that sets in the main lobby of the building.
We prepared everything in house and delivered it to the job. The general contractor installed everything. Some how I got chosen to over see all the instalation on the project, which was a chore in its self.
All the finish work was done on site in stages. The area was divided off into three sections. The contractor installed all the mill work in the back offices first and then we came in and preped the area and finished that area. Then the second stage and third last which was the lobby area. All the mill work was stained with a dye stain and toned in. There is four coats of sealer and four coats ICA clear. It came out like glass!
This was a very demanding project with tight deadlines and its share of problems, but we’ve had nothing but compliments from this project. From start to finish this was around a ten months to a year project. Lots of meetings, designing, drawings, and plenty of headaches. But it is probably my favorite by far.
Here’s a few more pictures of some other areas.
And thanks for having a look see.
