One of my favorites of your considerable collection. Your choice of lumber and grain direction really sing here, as well as your absolutely great A&C finish.

Another fine piece produced, marrying to quite different arts together.

Very nice contrast between the tile and the timber used. The style, timber selection and grain orientation works really well.

Don’t know where you get your frame ideas, but they are great. Super combination.

Dan what can possibly be said that hasn’t already been said. While I am certain that I will never be able to afford your work, when I move back to KY next spring I sure like to see some and meet you. ( I will be able to say that I know a real artist !
