The shop I worked for got the contract to do the millwork for the restoration of a WPA school that was built just a few miles from the Oklahoma capitol building in the 1930s. I was assigned with restoring the old HVAC stands, and adding another into what used to be the library.
Because this was a restoration project, they were very particular about having everything match the original as close as possible, which involved making my own 1/4” quarter round, as well as fabricating everything on site, due to the fact that absolutely nothing in this charming old building was square or plumb.
It took about two weeks of back and forth from the shop, but I think they turned out all right (at least before the painters brushed a thick stain on them and left all of their brush marks showing).
This was a very rewarding and challenging project.
