So this is a project I had designed and built out of solid maple specificly for a client. Using victorian style as my reference, this project was built and finished with 25 hrs and 15min duration. I used wipe on poly for the finish. I loved building this project but the sanding is just rediculous…slat after slat was so repetitive. I was so happy when I finally got passed that part. Anyways on to the next project. I hope not just you’s like it but mainly my client.

I just added an update. I have just uploaded 3 more pics of the project in its place in my clients home. I have one pic of the heater by itself and a pic with the cover over it. The final pic is just a pic based on the inside structure of the frame. And another update, MY CLIENT LOVED IT! Infact, she has me doing 2 more + other odds and ends. I know she will be reading this because she browses around on LJ’s since I introduced her to it, so I want to tell her ” I had a blast building this project and I’m anxious to do the next(s). Thanks tons!”

Looks like you got the finish worked out and the stately design is really beautiful! This is the kind of work that keeps many of us busy, CUSTOM! Funny, I built some air conditioner shrouds with bi folding doors just last summer. I’m just about done with the last job on the 1910 remodel job. The Master bath with custom made medicine cabinets & all door casings. Soon to show you all!
I really like the style & finnish of your (RAD) work!
