There was a special delivery out at the hill.....
Exciting enough that I'll shoot off a virtual firecracker left over from the Fourth of July!

We took a chance on ordering via the internet and it seems to have paid off. They arrived in good shape and with no obvious defects.
It's one of the bigger ticket items in the budget, and finding a supplier with a quality product that we could afford proved challenging.
The final test will be fit etc when they begin to be installed, but for now we couldn't be happier.
Since they're wood (not MDF or particle board veneers), it's important to seal them asap so that they don't begin to warp or absorb moisture via the air.
The paint crew was ready to begin work first thing the next morning....
In less than 24 hours they've already been stained and gotten a first coat of sealer.
Is there any prettier wood than quarter and rift sawn oak?
