Between the past 3 snowstorms, and cold weather I haven't got a whole lot accomplished

Knew you had been getting pretty hard there. Just glad you're OK considering the weather.

 

Holy cow Larry...this thing is rocking!:TwoThumbsUp:

Are those red "cut" glass lamp covers in the brass plate?

The brackets look awesome.

Like the spindle rail and good call not cutting the door down.

Is that valance brass? Can't wait to see it in it's new home.

 

Thanks for the update...truly have missed them as well as you just hanging out but understand. Stay safe & warm.

....Can you guess where this is going?

Home with you? :lol: Reminds me of the South Side of Chicago many, many years ago...either as the organ it once was or just the decor in the German area. Way cool.

No, they're just the rounded bezels.

No Dave,

It's one that was sold next door at the neighbors Antique Mall. IIRC it sold for $725.00.

But I've got loads of salvaged Spindles, and moldings. :D

Like clamps, you never can have too many spindles or molding stashed away, unless of course you can't find them.:lol:

That piece of furniture is very reminiscent of an old "pump organ" my parents used to have. Lots of ornate turnings. The thing actually worked! Unfortunately, my Dad thought it would look better if the oak wood was refinished. They eventually gave it to relatives.

That's a shame Lew.

Thanks Dave,

Believe it or not the idea came to me during the night. :huh:

I woke up, and told myself "I've got to remember this" then went back to sleep.

I figure if I'm going to go Sci-Fi, I have to go all the way! 

The following day I started going through my goodies to see what I could use to do this.

I was surprised to find that the 15" monitor was the same size height wise as the ceiling light fixture.

The extra width I'll cover with the wood case that will hide the monitor. 

I think it looks like it belongs on "The Nautilus".

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
