Impressive work! Just the symmetry in the seat is amazing let alone the lines. Very nice!

Nice homage to Maloof. I have never seen the twin rider before what a neat concept, how much weight do you think it could hold? jockmike

This would seem to classify as a work of art. Such an elegant design, nice shape and color.

Scott, another GREAT piece. I don’t know which of your skills is better – your crafsmanship or your photography, both are amazing.
