Wow! Nothing like some paint to highlight to highlight to wood. The result is beautiful!

Nice touch with the chopstick holder details.

Question: Did you need to do anything special to deal with the heat? Or is that not much of an concern?

Wonderful piece Ron, the proportions base to neck look spot on not to mention the decoration which is very easy on the eyes :)

Beauty and function combine wonderfully here. I love the way the paint subtly changes.

Have your say...
