My customer wanted something completely different so I built their bulkhead and support columns all out of red oak plywood and solid wood. I think it turned out pretty good!

Really nice, Keni! This is something I want to do with my bulkhead. I’m going to redo the t-bar ceiling with a custom wood paneled ceiling in the home theatre and build the bulkhead in like this. It’s on the list at #146.

Great work! That looks fantastic, your customer must be thrilled. Did you assemble the panels first then installed them or did you build them up in place?

Looks terrific. The lumber must have cost a fortune!

Just the kind of touch that really takes a basement from a C+ look to a solid A.

Nice job!
