This job for these Capitals started nearly a year ago. I was making progress as you can see but the clients had a problem with the Architect who ended up getting fired. The GC informed me months ago the job was dead.
Low and behold don't I get an email informing me they need these pieces in two weeks plus more carvings!
Are you kidding me? As if that's going to happen.
Sorry guys. You can't buy a ticket, get off the ride , let it go for 6 months, then think you can get back to the head of the line. Just doesn't work that way. I have more work than you can shake the proverbial stick at with clients with their own deadlines and projects that need to be completed AND where they have all their ducks in a row.
These Capitals are approx. 12" X 12 " and would have formed two, four sided capitals for the tops of columns in the clients home. A shame after all that work, gluing up, roughing out, carving , sanding etc. and after the job being on,, then on hold,, then dead in the water,, now they want it back on ,,,, this is where they sit. Yeah,, where they sit for the photo,, on the tree I'm currently carivng. Go figure~
