No worries. You couldn't have known. Such shenanigans would have been pretty normal around here, but my circumstances are a little unique.

Pretty darn cool mancave.





Although, it is missing a critical piece: [email protected]$$ RLX artwork and a 1/12 model of the RLX exotic ubermegacar.

Definitely not leaving the center part like that. I need to find a good cabinet solution for that space. That's why I say it's a work in progress.

They can pretty much do anything. I had them make an acrylic one of a McLaren 720S for a friend's birthday. It turned out really cool, as well.
