It looks great and it looks like a professional job. Well done. What a personal satisfaction it will be, when its finished and you begin to use it. Something you'll be/are very proud to have accomplished.

For some reason it looks kind of yellow in that pic. It actually is closer to natrual birch in color, but with bamboo type grain!

Well it's been a few weeks but things have moved forward. I had been putting off the last major hurdle. Most here will find this odd as this task is the very first that most tackle when building a Observatory. The pier, and it's base! This was a situation that existed because as earlier stated, the Observatory was moved to the property already built, before the rebuild. The floors framing needed reconstruction due to a central main joist. Not a fun project, so I left it for last. I have now got to the stage were it was holding up other tasks, so I bit the bullet and got it done. Here are some pics of the project, and the pier I had constructed.
