This was a commision for a professional sailor. I tried to keep with the nautical theme with the porthole and general design. The stand is cut from the same piece of Briar so that the grain matches up nicely, also kind of looks like a ship in the trough of a wave. Stained and waxed for a mirror finish. The top bird’s eye grain is from using the outside edge of the briar burl.
