Incredible finish, like it was made of porcelan or ceramics.

Jim I traded the finished piece for a raw piece of wood. It is a girl on Facebook that deals in wood out of Georgia. Elisabethtwotrees boys I think is what it is. She ships wood all over. https://www.facebook.com/Elisabeth2TBW?fref=ts. That should get you and other to her. Tell her I sent you

Beautiful! Love the way the colors compliment each other. I was also going to ask where you got a piece of holly that big. Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely beautiful.
Love the contrast.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Holly is so unpredictable where I live. This “pure white” is great.

Just beautiful! I love holly and the finial is beautiful and sets of the holly in a spectacular fashion.

I too, thank you for the tip on the large piece of holly. This lady might just get a lot of business thanks to your amazing project.
