You going blind or what Tom? Can't you see those 4 pics?



Actually, I don't type very fast on my phone, so I typed it all out on my puter & went back & edited my post from my phone to upload the pics. You're just too fast on the trigger. :)

I was in a hurry, wanted to get the floor graded for concrete on Monday, so I did part of the electricians job for him. Oh, and put the water line in, guess that means I get to charge both plumber and electrician rates?
I'll be back, got to go pick out my chinchilla coat

Pain in the butt wall to wall floor to ceiling built in Walls and floor out of level/plumb just enough to make things difficult. Both walls leaned to the right. The floor sloped to the right. Both corners were under 90º pushing the cabinets to the center. Had to get a bit creative and grind some of the upper cabinet box because things got squeezed because of the lean on the wall. But we persisted and made it work.

Still have to secure the left upper to the counter and the counter to the lower and make some more holes for the TV and put up crown.

Despite the large window in the room we needed lights all day.

Brownstone house, more then 100 years old, historical district, matching existing crown. Left in the hallway, right in staircase. Like crisscross an apple with pear. I almost like it myself :)

Don't lie to yourself.

The craftsmanship is very impressive, it's worth it just to look at. The look though is grating.

Takes a lot of craftsmanship to overcome terrible appeal but takes little appeal to overcome subpar craftsmanship.

You knocked that out of the park. No offense though, it still looks like a mess. Kudos to you to drawing ones eye away from the look and into "how did they do that" category.

I finally got to take a picture from work today. Tarpon on the beach creeping up on some threadfins... he said he was cool as long as it didn't show the building.

Looks good. You should finish off those octagon sections with a medallion if some sort. Something super simple but just causes a slight depth dimension change.
Great minds think alike. You are absolutely right. I do have some medallions and trim to add there, but with the cabinets being delivered tomorrow the blitz was on to complete the hardwood flooring.

I had some leftover black galaxy tile so decided to do a floor highlight under each ceiling feature. Had a good chat with my floor tile guy to get some tips and dos and don't before going ahead.

It was a tremendous amount of work, and I don't really get to look at it, with the ramboard and floor protection going down right after a section was installed. Learned a lot of tricks and was fortunate enough to have the precise size router bit I needed to slot the floor panels.

I've done similar inlays, but I do them different. I mark out where the medallions /tiles, ect go on the floor & make that a no nail zone. Then lay the floor as usual. Then go back with a rail saw, & cut it in if it's straight, or use a router & template if it's odd shaped. Way faster than your process.

Yours looks good though.
