Merci beaucoup!

I'm about 2/3 the way through gluing and nailing the first section. The boards are sitting loose in that pic. As soon as that one is done, I can pull it out and re-set the one side for the larger top section.

I should manage to be able to get them both done by suppertime. A few other things are on the list today as well.

If I could get as much work done in one week as you do in one day, I'd be a happy camper!

Just going to give the first panel another half hour in the clamps and then do the second one.

Well, the second panel is now in clamps. Quite a bit of work to do one of these. No sense doing another picture, it's the same as the one above only a couple of inches longer.

I think it can remain clamped all night.

Time for a quick dinner break.

That is going to be a one of a kind door Keith, I can't wait to see it finished, it is going to be a knock out. I hope you enjoy your supper buddy.

Thanks Jim, I'll unlock the second panel in the morning and start the glue up process.

Have to go to town tomorrow to pick up wife number two from the ferry...so most of the day is toast.

That is just breath taking buddy, that is a scene you would expect to see on the cover of National Geographic.

It's that time of year Jim, when we get the better sunsets. You never know until just a few minutes before the sun hits the mountains whether or not you may have a keeper in the making.

The best is usually when the line over the mountains is completely clear and there are broken clouds from there on up. That way the sun can hit the underside of the clouds which is what makes the good'uns.

Probably not. It was the 'word of the day' from dictionary.com a few weeks ago.
