Update... The packages arrived last week, 2 days before I was scheduled to leave for a week of Boy Scout Winter Camp - my oldest boy is a Life Scout, working on Eagle and his brother is year 2 Webelo chomping at the bit to be a Boy Scout. Anyway, I stopped by my Dads house to take a look and he hadn't even opened the boxes - so I did! I had to see what the looked like.
All I can say is WOW! If anyone is considering a real wood finish for their Axioms, It's worth it. These things look like fine furniture.
I hope to get the wires pulled during the Thanksgiving weekend - I have to go from the living room to his office via the attic, so 2 vertical pulls thru fire breaks, and the drywall and insulation is already installed. I just hope I don't ventilate the ceiling (if you look closely at the pics of my room you can see a hole next to the ceiling fan - oops).
