This job was at Islamorada in Key West. This was the trophy room. It was all Sepele and we used conversion varnish for all the clear coat.

-- Have a great day.

That is beautiful work. I hope you had at least a little time here and there to do some relaxing. I was there only once and it was a nice place to visit.

Great looking room!
Surely will make the trophies look even that much more impressive!!!

I too, have only been to Key West once. Looking forward to going back and doing some scuba diving!
So, the next time you need help….
Just ask & provide airfare….
I’ll be there in a heartbeat!!! ;^)

Wow …. another awesome project. and what a jobsite! Man! Some guys have all the luck!

Flashback: hitch hiked from Austin to Key west at 17 and lived in the back apartment of a bike rental shop on Duval for 6 months back in the 70s. The old man like to use me as a punching bag so I left home. This really cool “Conch” (looked like Tom Selleck) hired me to help remodel his 2 story white stucco hotel and I was a 1st mate (deck swabber) on his 36’ sail boat, caught lobsters for extra cash, .... I digress.

That wood is stunning. I like the rope detail too. Did you make the Sapele? doors or are those available down there? It would be really cool to get a picture of the room all finished and set up with furniture. I’m curious what he plans to put on those top shelves.

I agree with randy, wish I was there with you guys. but, I wouldn’t want to have to find a parking spot for my big van though! Ha! is the parking still a nightmare?

good post. thanks,

reedwood, We didn’t have time to make the doors so, we outsourced them and yes, parking is still an issue. The floor is tile and carpet and we will get pictures of the finished rooms. We are going back in February to install the new lobby.

-- Have a great day.
