All were custom made and handcrafted.</p><p>In addition, the paneling was removed from the walls and replaced with drywall and wainscoting.</p><p>“We were fortunate to have Mike Lester, who’s originally from Good Hope, who took on the job of basically crafting from hand all aspects of the wood that is in the courtroom and it’s phenomenal,” said Associate Judge Patricia Walton.</p> Mon, 26 Nov 2012 20:39:12 +0000 Rich Egger 24915 at http://tspr.org Courtroom Returned to Historic Look
