Time for coffee break...I'll have one or two pics a little later.

Almost done on the basic coverage, just some of the awkward bits and pieces to finish. But at least it looks as though I won't need to cut any more cedar - at least for the stairwell!

This is the end of the continuous run of cedar on the top stairwell.

Last section - the ninth - this is below the window and now that's done.

Just on top of the window to finish, all tapered cuts...

here are the cabinets that i and the miss are working on right now ... and no we did not put the handles on the cabinets... they are so plain and .. well.. ugly lol


and these....


and last one


That is the 3d view ... so I want to take out the middle and replace it with glass.. we are thinking the rice paper glass and painting the cabinets black... I know once that we get the glass in the cabinets we need to start keeping things "neat" in the cabinets but we think it will give the kitchen more of a modern look... btw I was really floored by the craftsmanship and the beauty of the glass that you put in with the flowing scene...

any suggestions? The middle of the cabinet looks like it is not part of the cabinet at all but loose almost...

You're probably right about the panels being loose, but that's perfectly normal.

It wouldn't be hard to get the panels out, but the trick is going to be to be able to do it without destroying the door frames.

The first thing that comes to mind is that you might be able to cut around the edge of the panel, but leave an extra 1/2" or so protruding from the frames. Then you could add your glass - stained glass - or whatever you have, and fit that to the size of the frame. There should be enough room behind the glass to add a piece of trim to keep the glass in.

If that doesn't appeal, try using a couple of clamps to pull one of the door frames apart at the top or bottom. See what happens. If you can get one end of the frame out, then you can slide the panel out and replace it with your glass.

I'm sure there are other things, but see if that works first.

Thanks Jim...Just got some more finish on the wall, to the point where I ran out. So, next trip to town I'll need some more.

Couple of pics to d/l and I'll post in a few minutes.

Here's what the finish looks like around the windows. The Minwax really does make the colour come up on the cedar. The missus thinks it's a bit too much, but it settles down somewhat when it dries - and it is only the satin finish.

Taken from the bottom of the top stairs...the scaffold plank is still in the way, but I think you can see that all the fiddley bits are in up top.

I will finish the second coat of urethane up top before I pull the plank. There are a few boards to go on the wall where the plank support is, but they are all set to go.

Nah...I'll probably do something really silly...like stand on the stairs and yank it out.

My goodness, that is absolutely gorgeous Keith.

Is the ceiling on an angle - higher on one side?

Whew! That sure was a lot of work! But you probably already know that....

Thanks for posting the pictures.

My stars, that sure does make a difference, you saved the best for last. Just stunning Keith. That was a big project that you don't have to do again. Just think tomorrow you won't have to get up to the stair well.

Indeed it is. I think the pitch of that roof is around 3 1/2 or 4/12.

I can tell you I'm glad that's over with. Just a bit more finish to apply and fill in the holes where the scaffold rests...and that's it.
