Crystal chandeliers, etc.

Very impressive but I'd have to sort out that bending shelf with the suitcase on it.
It looks like it's smirking at you.

Bit of 1x2 underneath?

That's ikea for you. It's why I only go bespoke now.

Anyway, out of sight, out of mind at last.

Finally!

Two coats of undercoat, two coats of top coat and 5 of one door knob and one of another purchased and they're finished!

Very happy with the outcome and it's given me confidence to tackle more creative stuff further down the line.

Looks superb.
On one hand I have wardrobe envy, but on the other hand I have a job.
Basically I could simply pay you to build me some and it takes no effort.
Or even better I could pay someone who is equally good, but knows that you need 6 door knobs if you have 6 doors.

Crystal door knobs? Who the fvck do you think you are? A Disney Princess?

I apologise in advance if they aren't crystal/glass gay handles.
I can't see that well and 968 has banned me from all NHS places because I implied that him and his type were work-shy shit bags.

You could but I would charge three thousand pounds for this sort of workmanship.

Good. You'll can afford a chandelier to go with them. I expect Argos will have what you need.
You should have got it the same time as the handles.

Good work Sexwhale!

Cheers Monts, maybe there's a gap in the market for combining both services?

Just two years without doors? I'm at about 12 now and my wardrobes will never get doors because my Ex made a shit job of the carcass and realised what a crap job he did after trial fitting a few 'doors' and I'm not good enough with tools to sort it.

Still on the bright side I get kept occupied with lots of washing when the clothes get dusty when in the wrong season and not worn :hehe:

Nice job Tokes btw :)

Looks good Tokes, you could always swap to orthopaedics if the paramedicing doesn't work out.

Much better job than I could do.

As a matter of interest, how any hours did it take?
