    20 Feet Up
    Thanks everyone. I've been taking some pics here and there as I went. I'll post them up when I get a second.

    JakeD, you're absolutely right about the work involved! It seems simple enough, but my main wall is almost 25ft long and 10ft tall. It took a lot more wood than I expected.

    One of the bonus's that came about was that I ended up with a stack of cherry and black walnut. The cherry has a reddish tint and looked really nice mixed in with the rest here and there.

    The other neat thing I noticed was that after I got the wall done, I took a piece of 80 grit sand paper and by hand went over the wall lightly to knock off any loose sawdust, high spots, etc. What it ended up doing was really making the saw marks in each board more visible and created a neat affect.
