- Thanks for the compliments!

- The curved top was made by cutting multiple thin laminations of about 2 mm each then regluing them in a vacuum press on a curved template. The ebonized walnut part of the top along with the inlaid handle was cut to size before gluing it to the rest of the top.

Hi Jim. I’d be honored to have you use any design as long as it’s for personal use and not for sale.
Have fun with it.

Have your say...
