Awesome Branch, they are great. Love the spalting.


-- 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.

These are beautiful, Branch. Where do you get the ‘ornaments’ for the lids?
