Final Stretch.

Hi everyone, Its been a few weeks now since my last post I've been struggling with regular migraines plus everyday chores but I've managed to make a little more progress and thought id share what I've managed to do. The main door of the box proved a little more tricky than i anticipated this was due to the fact that using real glass made the door heavy as the frame is rather delicate in the end i had no option but to use thin plexiglass also as a precaution i fitted three hinges instead of two.

 
 

 
I have also installed a matching frame surround to complete the room which has been decorated with a hand painted decorative gold border, this as you can see is also visible when the door is shut.
The second image also gives a better view of the ceiling.

 
 

The final image shows the door partially open. All that's left for me to do now is complete the secret compartment along with its contents and the rear compartment which holds the electrics plus a few minor things.
Its been a challenge completing this piece of work as i have been limited to the amount of time i could put in but it feels worth it now the end is in sight and i can start to make plans for constructing some new pieces once complete i will do a full rundown of all the contents with images to.
Have a great week everyone. Tony.

  5. Wow it looks like a museum piece to me, fantastic, you have done a great job, headaches and all. I really sympathise, I have suffered some awful headaches myself and I don't think anyone who has never had them can really understand, they are debilitating. Hope you are over them now.

    1. Thank you margaret, they are very difficult to cope with at times especially if i have one that last for 2 or more days, you would think after suffering them for 30 years id be used to them by now but sadly they dont get any easier :)

    1. Thank you Sharee, i have to admit i was a little worried when i first started this piece about the dimensions but i didnt want to make the piece oversized on the exterior in the end i just went with my gut feeling.

    1. Many thanks Marisa, i have been a long term sufferer of migraines ( 30 years) in the past i have been prescribed medications but as soon as i get used to taking them which i have to admit i'm not keen on they become ineffective and im back to square one again.
