« Part 18: Corbels - what do you think? Part 19 of The agony, the agony, some more agony and the ecstasy series no next part

As promised, the last instalment entitled · F I N ·

I ended up showing my client the corbels – they still had a faint whiff of lacquer off them, she thought they were a ‘super finishing touch’ so the corbels are on it, in a compromise sort of way, they are tucked in the corners where the middle section protrudes, there are four corbels on it instead of six. I have two left over, maybe I’ll put them on ebay or something.

What can I say about this job? It’s certainly had it’s moments. Certainly blogworthy I think. It’s been fun making it for the most part, it’s been a downright hard slog making it at times too. I’ve learnt and done new stuff, I’ve done some things differently. It’s been frustrating, it’s been difficult. But it’s done. I’m glad it’s gone, but I’d also like to do more work like this.

Got the cheque and now the van is full of maple for a sliding wardrobe.

Thanks to everyone who has offered a kind word or encouragement during the process, I hope this has been an entertaining read, even if not all that informative.
