I started this project way back in December and just finished it earlier this week. About 120 hours of labor in all. I will be putting together some process pictures sometime soon to post in "Project Photos".

[iagree] That is awesome Steve! [Worthy]

I thought the projects I did could eat up some time. It's amazing how fast time flys by on some of these projects! Well done!!

I love the title too! Posted Image
