Creating a Commission Piece (the process)

I just delivered this large commission to a new home in the BIG city a couple of weeks ago! It was a pretty cool project to work are a few pix of the process...this project took several months from the 1st time the client contacted me to when the piece was successfully installed. I do not have any images of the full install, just the day we delivered....the piece was eventually supported off the floor in the opening, you will have to use your imagination.
I am very happy to have completion on this one!
