Impressive Wooden Case Mod called FiveWood
My Grandfather, August Cook, and his wife Irma were amazing artists. August was a fantastic craftsman as well.- his works included oil paintings, wood carvings, sculpture and furniture craft. My other grandfather, T.J. Nuckols was a very creative woodcrafter as well. T.J. (or DD as he was called) always had creative ways to make things from wood. It is this great gene pool of craftsmanship and creativity that I am abusing here.
However, he also had some other substantial regrets, including not taking the time to implement his originally designed fibre-optic lighting system for the inside. He finally sucked up and bought a couple white CCFLs when he realized that his frame design did not have the room for a tidy fibre-optic lighting system.
Also in the original design was an idea for four "Barkley panels" instead of a single sliding door. Try as he might, Chris could not get the look down to a level he was satisfied with, so they ended up shelved. Along with them went the wooden fans, which simply would take too much time for no real gain (other than to say he'd done them). And hey, would you want to try balancing those suckers?
