You're crazy.
That gun doesn't look anything like Tre Cool or multiples of him.

Great, Scott! Super pro design/build. Got it all, ogees, crowns, dentils, flutes, rosettes.

Can I spec stuff out and just send it to you to make?

And, in New Orleans, isn't a wet bar a redundancy?

Great looking work around the fireplace Scott. Nicely done!

To bring things back to a more basic level, I am halfway done a pergola on my deck. Here's a pic of some basic 2x4 construction:


The boards running perpendicular overhead will be added later this week or next weekend. While it's pretty low tech I am happy with the way it's shaping up so far.

Cheers,

I quite like the flooring.
What kind of wood is that?

Hi Chess!

It's Bellawood's Santos Mahogany sourced from Lumber Liquidators. This is the 3/8" thick solid t&g. Very hard and therefore brittle - carfeful nailing required. Also, allow a couple of extra weeks to acclimate. We wound up with bad cupping and a few blow outs due to the expansion. All in all I'd do it again without hesitation - but I'd also let it get happy in my humid garage for a couple of weeks before installing.
