The key to every historical remodel or addition is getting the architectural details right before you start. Every piece of woodwork has to be custom designed to be historically accurate. The beautiful thing about this project was that I was working with the legendary Disney Imagineer Tony Baxter.
Since this project was an addition to the original designs he did many years ago, we were able to take the custom designs and improve on them. The stained glass windows were all hand-drawn by Tony himself. We took all the new woodwork and sandblasted it, which gave it a vintage worn look.
The progress photo shows the new woodwork in its natural state before it was aged.
