I assume you measured the office doors and hallways before accepting that job. He he.. That’s a monster.

That’s quite an undertaking! The table turned out beautiful. It must weigh a ton.

“Closed it in with traps and added lights.” When I read that, I figured you have the same problem as we do with squirrels, field mice, woodchucks, etc. and wanted to make certain they didn’t mess up your work. Then I saw the last picture and realized you meant tarps. Two letters twisted around can really twist the meaning! LOL

Not just large, but really beautiful too. I can tell from your work description that nothing less than perfect gets out of your shop!
