Great pics. Thanks!

Is cast iron for the gear case at all unusual?

And then (you know, so may great pics, so many lame questions), what's your panel finish, plain polyurethane?
The NV4500's were all cast iron, one reason they are desirable.

As far as the panel finish, I had started with a piece of scrap wood and finish I had sitting around. The finish is Waterlox Satin finish. I'm not using any stain, just straight out of the can, to show the grain and keep the interior lighter...

Questions are fine

Some more assembly required disassembly for progress... added rivnuts in the wall studs to anchor things. I still have some doors to make.

That's a good looking heavy-duty installation. Nice.

What kind of lumber is that clear-grained tropical looking wood at the seating/ sleeping area (the 2x material)?
