First and foremost, I would like to thank LJ William for the inspiration and instructions on how to make this. The quality of his work is a motivating force for me.

Our biggest show of the year starts 2 weeks from today. As always, you want something to get people’s attention and get them to stop and talk. It’s all made of Beetle Kill Pine. it’s 51” square and 31” tall. Poured epoxy top.

Although it’s still not perfect, it is a piece that I can pound my chest a little for.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Absolutely beautiful Monte, it will definitely attract attention.
Great job.
