Next project on the list was a pair of bases for a male and female sculptures for the Debate Chamber.
We wanted them to be similar to the Alter base, but these are a bit smaller with a few different details.
One of those details is a bunch of little dentil blocks.
We went with an Ionic style capital and column.
The male base has fluted Doric columns like the Altar base.
There is only one problem the sculptures got reversed when the movers placed them.
I think we can sort that out easy enough!

After the Park Place job we got back to what we love, making one of a kind stands for incredible objects. This is a Roman Altar that I believe predates Christ.
As I was taking the pictures I thought I'ld check the weight. That is one heavy piece of stone!
Can anyone translate?
A couple of shots before stain and polish.

This is a project a long time in the making. I started the bid in, I believe February. Received the P.O in early March. Then it was put on hold for a decorator change. Finally in September we started on it for a late October install. Lot's of coffee tables some end tables and cafe' tables and one massive granite conference table.
We did three of these 2 x 5 x18"
This one is 4'x7'x18" Star fire glass again.
In this area we did the three End tables and four Cafe' tables.
The 2 x 5's in another setting.
Oh yeah! Their where 4 of these with absolute Black Granite for tops.
Last but not least a 17' 10" x 69" Triple pedestal conference table out of Blue Pearl Granite. Yes it went upstairs and thats three pieces. put together flawlessly.
Thanks to Wood Gallery for the Quartered Maple panels.
Whitesmith and Paul Vaden for the metalwork.
Stonexpressions for the Granite, and Glasshaus for the Glass.

After the directories we started working on some items for the new complex at Old Parkland.
Off of the parking garage of Commonwealth Hall is a lobby to the elevators, with the theme of World War 2. There are several display cases with different ships, submarines and other memorabilia.
This particular model is 111" inches long 16 1/2 wide and 28 tall. The first time I saw it was in the shipping crate in a warehouse. With know way to really take accurate measurements we had it delivered to the shop.
Below are the first pictures with it in the crate.
Here it is on the bench, paper underneath to get a full size drawing going.
Yes! the props work as do the rudders and navigation lights.
A little damage to repair and a good cleaning was next so off it went to the model repair guy.
Here is the cabinet before stain.
Corner detail at the base.
Top corner detail.
Here it is set up in it's new home. I really want to thank the guys with Unified Delivery they did a great job with a real tricky install. I know lifting the glass top up and over the boat was a real thrill!! Nice job on the glass by Jim at Malloy Art Glass
