Thank goodness, I did not have to stain this!
We built this room out of low grade cherry and red birch plywood. The two different types of racking were kind of tedious, but once the jigs were set up it wasn’t too bad. The worst part about this job, it was about 75 miles north of our shop and after about 3 weeks building in the shop and another 2 weeks installing. We were ready to move on! It was for one of those home builders, I think he said he had about 8 Mexicans do the finishing and they were in and out in 2 days. I’m kind of scared to go back!

All I can say is Wow, terrific work. Did this customer have a better attitude than the bar customer (I hope)? Beautiful stuff. Let us know how the staining went.

Wow!...looks like a big undertaking! Staining it would be a great undertaking for sure! I hope they didn’t stain it the way Mr. Bean paints his apartment!

Amazing. I am in awe of tight architectural millwork.

Do you sand or prep these for staining when it is a deal like this?

I’m excited when I can get a picture frame square, this is great. Do you draw up your own plans also and do you work alone on projects like this?

Wow, that is simply amazing!

Now I think 5 coats of wipe-on poly should do the trick. :-)

Wow, that is absolutely great looking. It’s always amazing to see how the rich live, I can only imagine what the rest of the house must look like. Nice contract.
