I like it, especially the door. It can expand and contract while holding its structural integrity. Great work and good looking wood. BTKS

Very nice. A warm glow to the door invites you in. When is the wine tasting?

Love the Rustic almost German look. Is what I am reminded of from my time spent there. Very nice, very cool looking.
