Very cool. Where did you get the inspiration for such a project?

Nice website too by the way. I was roaming around yesterday evening looking at your projects. Very wide variety.

Thanks for all the kind words.
The inspiration came from my client. He wanted something with a western theme. I immediatly thought of a water tower. There was a third piece in this theme, a media center that houses all the home electronics and the security system for the home. The build took 2 weeks, we chose alder as our face hardwood on a birch ply carcass. The finish is a custom blended stain we call FT3, base on minwax's english chestnut but with a warmer tone blend. The top coat is Zinnser's Quick 15 sprayed (6 coats) then 800 and 1000 grit sanded, and then machine buffed. Bullet proof finish.

Again I say Thanks for the warm welcome to the forum, looking forward to sharing ideas in the future.
