Ben's back in town, and back on the job. I've been really tied up the last couple of days, but tomorrow I'll take some new progress photos and get those posted for you to see. I'll also take pictures of the great furniture pieces he's made.

Ben's work is impressing you all, but no one is more impressed than me. He's the master of his craft, and it's a pleasure to be working with him.

As promised, here are some new photos of the room, as of today. In addition to the progress photos of the room, there are also some shots of the bathroom, which Ben is making progress on.

I also took some detail shots of the cool OA light fixtures, as well as the awesome ceiling fan. Check out the red uplighting coming from the fan housing!

Wow! That place is unreal.

What's the trick to making the bamboo look so old, Ben?

Maybe you should rethink that being a guest room and move in for yourself. That room is great. Ben is the man for sure.

I can honestly say that for the first time in my life I'd like to live in someone's bathroom.

Ben,
I'm not kissin your butt here; If there was one SOUL that could build a replica of the Mai Kai, you would be that Tiki soul. It's a pleasure to be your friend.

Ask him HOW he broke it Peeps. I'm not spillin the beans here but it has to do with automated nail delivery. (mail delivery?) Don't ask to see pix either, I don't wanna see any. And he's still workin folks, like Nuttin ever happened.
