Back to the Keys for another job install. This piece was about 30 feet long and 9 feet tall wall of artifacts from the Florida keys. Everything in that room we made at S + L Millworks. It is made from Sapele, blue laminate, brushed aluminum. Ron designed it, Diego and I built it, Bill sprayed the finish and Chris did all the graphic design work. The finish on the Sapele is pre cat lacquer.

-- Have a great day.

Nice…really nice. The five of you should be really proud of that.

Nothing like being part of a winning team. I miss that from my shipyard days.
You guys are definitely a winning team. Enjoy the ride. Some day you will have great memories of these days.

Wow! That’s a gorgeous installation.
What I wouldn’t do to be part of something like that.
