Was truly an exercise in patience!
And more patience needed, but turned out rather nicely I think.
Unique stair trim, enjoyed the challange.
Small baths can be eye catching areas.
Mahogany library.. really enjoyed doing this.

This was a brownstone remodel in Society Hill, Philadelphia. The project required extreme precision, with no room for error as the materials could not be replaced relatively easily, (custom made for the job). The owners had the entire 3 story building gutted and reworked. I was brought in as the finish carpenter, along with another individual. The project turned out rather nicely I think, and the homeowners were extremely happy.
