I have to make these in panels so i can deliver and install with a minimal amount of cutting and grinding. It’s a gov base with people all over the place, so i can’t finish anything in place, or take a camera in with me either, so no finished pics..these are for two different conf rooms. Me and the pup been sanding and spraying for a week..gotta love it !

Great looking work you got going there. I have had same problem with picture taking of the work I did at Rush Limbaughs estate. It really sucks when you can’t get pictures of finished project.

Quite a project you have there! All the hard work is done now, right? Installation will be a SNAP! right?

Dang, I sure wish I could get my dog to sand. All she wants to do is supervise.

Nice work, btw!

Good thing you have good sized building – if I did a project of that size the whole back yard would have to be used.
Great looking parts – wish we could see the end project, but realize your limitations – I can even tell you what I work on.

great looking work
I had to do some work in a federal building once. It housed the FBI among others. The security was a
nightmare. They wanted to confiscate allot of my tools. Finally convenced them that I needed that stuff.

Woody, that’s great.

Several years ago, I was ‘lent out’ by the army to teach some courses for a local police department who had just received surplus M16’s from the Fed.

As a safety measure, we weren’t allowed to unpack the bayonets as they were on the list of dangerous items.

The machine guns were OK, but the bayonets had to stay put away…
