So, its been about a year since I started my little project. I am now in the finishing stages. Got the windows, doors, baseboard done. One coat of stain/poly on it now, Filled the nail holes. Then sand it all and a final finish coat of stain/poly. One last thing to finish the windows is to make like 1600 linear feet of window casing. I set upmy table saw to make it with a moulding bit set.

Heres a pic of the ones I did all ready on the other windows. Its like 6 beads and a edge detail. I make it from clear 1x4 pine.
Also is a pic of the original (1910) stained glass window i installed in the stairway wall. It is across from the outside window to let light into the stairway, but still keep it private from the bedroom.
Also I need to install the newel posts and railings still.
Carpet is going in in afew weeks.

I flucking love woodwork. The sense of not just accomplishment but beauty as well is more than enough reason to use natural. I know in today's world they have many alternatives in composites to save costs but it's just too fake and cheap for me. Love the interior raised panel doors. I have a bit set for my shaper for making such panels. It's just a classy/traditional look IMO. Nice work!

Thanks. The base board is 2 piece, A 1x8 base and a cap. 2x the work on cutting all the angles. And the doors are solid pine, not that cheap imitation crap.
I made all the window sills from 1x6 and routered the bottom edge into them, Just gotta finish the casing and apron.
I will then finish the stairs. One of the newel posts is sitting in my dead dogs bed in pic 7.

Thanks Paul.
Yes, Oak, Looking at the ones the have at HD, but also looking at some reclaimed ones from NEsalvage. But I cant find 22 of them in good matching condition. Plus I want to keep in scale with the stairs. Will probobly go with the HD ones at $5 plus a piece.

I have a lathe and have done some work for my own interests and love it. It's a fantastic feeling being able to turn your own work. I had a couple of bar stool back rest spindles break when my cat decided to leap off one. The chair crashed and I was left with fixing or replacing it.

Well, Bathroom is ready for tile. Finished installing 1/4 durarock, Thinsetted and screwed down for a solid, flat, level floor.
These are the tiles Im going with for the floor.
BASKETWEAVE TILE MOSAIC HONEY ONYX POLISHED.

Still deciding on the wall tile..Either a pocelain travatine looking tile or real travatine tile. Im not to crazy about using real stone due to the pourasity of the stone and high maintenance of sealing it bi-anualy. May do a mix of both, Porcelain field with travatine accents..idk...

Thanks Snow, And everyone else. Most of the work is just detail stuff, Hanging lights, plug covers, ect. My last big project is the bathroom, and I am just starting to get ides for tile and stuff.

This is the wall tile. A 6x6 travatine beige color.
Also adding a midway design detail and a recessed nook.

Pics when done.

Well, Its been a long time in the progress. About 1.5 years and lots of $$. Thanks to everyone who has followed this build. This is my last post on this. I am having my final inspections this week and will be done as far as the legal stuff goes. Still some detail stuff, but anyway... One thing that set me back is the fire Dept. wanting me to add more smoke detectors on the first floor.. PITA as everthing is finished. But what ever..
So theses are the last few pics. Thanks again.

That shower is very top notch work. Looks like a suite in an upper end hotel. As always, nice work on the stairs too.
