The fixtures have been crafted...I'm very pleased with how they turned out.
I'm at an impasse with the fire because I need logs, and the fallen branches in my yard are buried under snow. I need to put my winter boots on then stomp around the yard until I find something to bring in and dry out....but the sun is rising when I drive to work and setting when I return home, so I'll have to wait for the weekend. This will be my first lit fireplace, I'm anxious to see it completed.
In order to hang the pendant lights in the kitchen at the right height I need to measure the distance between the bottom of the pendant and the top of the island. I don't have the island built yet, so I'll work on that next.
