Very nice and very time consuming to make it!

Way past my skills and patience levels too!

In response to the question on using hackberry, I like it natural as stains I tried in past took away from it’s uniqueness. It works well but I don’t care for the smell during cutting. It is a little less stable than oak when exposed to humidity changes so expect it to move a little.

Very nice! And I thought I was the only one who made stuff from hackberry. Now get some spalted hackberry. It is really cool.
