Great project, video and music. I could never live with that outlet messing up the symmetry of the work. I think I would have to move it or make it go away. The wainscoting does add a lot of style to a room.

redryder, I struggled with the same thing, the plug is in the middle of the circuit run, so even if i removed the plug and turned it into a junction box by code it still has to be accessible, other option was to call and electrician and have the plug removed and the line rerun to outlets after it in the circuit. So, i differed to the boss (my wife) and she was happy with this solution, and as the saying goes “when momma’s happy, every one is happy” :)

Very interesting to watch the job progression, and the excellent result.

If we’re talking about cello pieces, I have to say that one of my favourites was the Bach minuet included in the 70’s film Electric Dreams.

You’ve made a real nice job of that David & nicely painted too made the room much more elegant in fact quite in keeping with a little chamber music
