absolutely stunning. I truly admire your use of brass veneer, like in some of your other projects. Really adds a lot. Where do you get the veneer sheets? Also, I have never worked with Forest Street plans. After seeing your last few projects I made my way to their web site to have a look. Very much impressed….... Thanks.
