I haven't had too much of a problem with movement on poplar, it's just that it telegraphs like a bitch. Even the guys who use it for trim.

I did a door out of it once, stability wasn't bad, grain telegraphing sucked.

Down at the shore I've gotten call backs for doors that got a bit tight in the humid weather and the margins a bit wide in the winter. Moves too much. Different from not stable.

I was curious so had to look it up. It does have a tangential to radial shrinkage of 1.8 but Big leaf maple is 1.9, I know that doesn't tell the whole story but it's usually indicative...

Maybe its because even though the percentage is higher in big leaf the over all shrinkage is smaller? That could be the reason it shrinks/expands less.

Most involved bath remodel to date for us. Almost everything was done in house. "Puzzle wall" was designed by the client and then we took the material and had it cut on a waterjet and then installed it.

That looks tough.

One of those things you constantly can't decide if you love or hate the entire time. Have to keep reminding yourself not to get caught up on if you like it, but that it's only important if the craftsmanship is high quality.

Nice work brother. The craftsmanship looks awesome

I was thinking the same thing. The craftsmanship looks awesome, but I would have thought those colors and styles were the ones getting torn out to update them, not put in brand new.

But good work anyway. I suppose we all install stuff all the time that we would never personally want in our homes.

The floor tiles are 2'x4'. The walls inside the shower were 31"x60" cut down from 71" tiles!

I appreciate the kind feedback on the install. I know it's not a look for everyone but it is so cool and unique. It also ties in well with the house and it is a nice update vs the old bath we took out. I really enjoyed tue challenges the project had.

Most everything I do is modern shiny stuff. I hate it. But whatever, it ain't my house, they pay well, and like the look.

I like challenges too, doesn't even matter what it looks like as much as it does if it makes me go hmmm.

48x80x15 with a nice porch on it, should look pretty sharp when we're done.

This one has 18" dia x 12" thick poured concrete footings, and perma column posts.

We're getting there, should be able to wrap the exterior up tomorrow, except for the porch ceiling and posts.

It's supposed to rain Friday, so we'll work on the ceiling in the barn, gonna try hanging 40' sheets, so there's only one splice.

That telehandler platform is the shiznit,
3 guys installed the garage door header and windows , and did tyvek, trim, and siding on that gable end in 4 hours.
