I am greatly impressed with your skill Troy! Me and wood do not get along. I can work metal and make it do what I want, but wood-working seems a lot like Voo-Doo to me LOL. I admire folks who do this kind of work, It's just not my forte'.


You took the words right out of my mouth.

Great work there Troy.

I just wish the weather would give me a couple of decent days to paint, so I can get finished. I want to be able to start my round fender patio collection come Spring!

Looks great Troy. I don't understand painting furniture, but that's just me. I like the look of the wood grain, but it is easier when someone wants it painted, you don't have to be as fussy when building it.

I agree, but as you say Troy the customer is always right.
Nice Job!!:thumbs:
Heres an idea for a mantle, if you were closer I could have you start on the bookshelves I am supposed to add on both sides of this, below the windows, its only going on 4 years now

That has already crossed my mind Kenny, and I haven't given up on it yet.
