This started out as a serving tray. Didn’t like it so I cut the ends off and ended up with this. Book matched 5/8” thick and measures 12” X 10”. I guess it’s sorta big for a trivet but…...what the heck. Finished with Howard’s wax. Thanks for the looks and comments.

That’s a beautiful piece Jay. The eyes look so real. You really have the flame where it belongs. Well done.

Sometimes the smallest pieces of art turn out to be the biggest, figuratively speaking. That is simply stunning!
