My $40 (300 sq. ft.) Homemade Birch/Walnut Ceiling


thanks dorfdude! i'm going to build a walnut box around that 4 foot light (above the two 6x6 casement windows) with white plexiglas inserts, hinged for easy access with a HDD magnet to keep it shut, and a ceiling fan/light combo for the center of the room. i finished wiring the switches today. i'm thinking of this for the fan---> http://www.hunterfan.com/product_detail.aspx?id=27948 built in heat too! any other ideas are certainly welcome!

That is one heckuva ceiling job Mouse. I too have been looking for something a bit different to do to my basement ceiling once the rest is complete. Excellent craftsmanship!!
