Niece piece. All your projects are beautiful and inspiring.
Your desire do work in wood fulltime(from your profile) I understand having been doing it for the last 17 months. Should you choose to “jump” as I did, have a well thought out plan, and dont be dissuaded from your path as I was. It took me a whole year before I made up my mind to do a custom casket, the direction I had been prompted to go in but was discouraged from by “the system” to get funds for startup. Fortunately before my business grant money ran out I was able to to make a casket for my dear friend. The last 2 days I’ve been back in a semi at night and can only get in the workshop 2 maybe 4 hours a day.
Stick to your guns Phil. Your work is great.

Very nice work again Phil. Great color. Many of my pieces looked unintentionaly distressed. ; )
Are any of these for commision or do you keep it all?
Second question: Will you post shop photos? It does not look like a huge place. . I am inspired by what you accomplish.

It looks greatly distressed. I’m not one that sees the point, but many like a new piece that looks 100 years old. Personally I’d like a new piece and have it last 100+ years so the markings would have a story behind them. Nice work!
