Nice retreat you have there Adrian. Did you make your trim? Very nice. Love all your masks. Very nice Mug collection. Thought you gave them all away, still LOL at that one. Outstanding work.

Thank you. Yes, I made all my own trim. You can do it too -- it's super easy.

Some tips - practice on a piece of scrap to get the feel of the router. 2x4s can be had at Home Depot for lest than $2 each. Clamp them down and go.

Easy Peasy...

Thanks for the tips. I have a few routers at home including two plunge routers and some bits I've picked up at garage sales. Guess I just have to plunge into it. Gonna go to Monkeyman's workshop in October.

Amazing looking trim, Adrian!
I've gone an burned all of ours for The Breezeway. I might try and stain AFTER burning to see how that comes out. Might be horrible... We'll see.

My @ss!!!! I've tried trim on a router and it's WAY harder for me than you make it seem but you may have motivated me to give it another go. I'm envious!!!

There’s some talk in another thread about power strips, overhead lighting and how many power points/switches one has to turn on to get their bars fully up and running. I decided to post my solution here rather than bog that thread down with all of my pictures. With that said, after a little thought and work, I am able to get my room up and running with only 2 switches – you read that right – 2 switches!

Switch 1 - The main switch handles all the lights on the ceiling in the main room, the rope lights on the upper and lower mug shelves and the lights on the end tables. Switch 2 - I installed a second separate switch in the bar area which handles all the lights there. No power strips anywhere so no extension cords either. And, if I ever decide to sell the house it’s all removable.

You really did a nice job on that room Adrian.

Everything is very well thought out and executed as only an Architect could do.

Congrats.
