thanks Herman, I'm looking forward to meeting you as well

part of the reason I'm in NY is for the amount of potential clients.
there is a ton of disposable income floating around the city
tapping into it is the tricky part.

There certainly is a ton of disposable income floating around. I'll use your services when I can afford that custom in wall tank one of these years.

RHH,

I would definately recommend it - I had mine done by a contractor and not a carpenter/cabinet maker - and I make trhe distinction becuase one can build and the latter can craft - making it is 1/2 the battle, making it beautiful is why JH is so good. He will do mine for sure oncce I setlle into my new office.

realy nice tank
love the framed look and dark stain

no the hinges were temporary, and I never had the chance to change them.

I was just looking through some catalogs for something that would complement it.
I'm thinking antique brass. I'm also going to look in the "parts" bins in my parents basement, they have all kinds of old hardware parts down there, maybe I'll score some vintage hinges.

you have a keen eye Sean

cool some vintage hinges would look awsome just be carful of the rust factor (I'm sure I didn't have to tell you that)

How about a pair of Soss barrel hinges and lose the hinge look all together?
