Oh wow. I am currently watching Charles Neil’s DVD on his build of a hunt board. It’s neat to be able to connect the dots on how these things should be built.

Hey RJ
This huntboard just reeks of quality of workmanship and master furniture maker I think it’s under priced at $3950. A fine build and classic design.

Nice work! Great proportions and my personal thing-great finish. It really glows and comes off as warm. Makes you want to touch it. For the record-those are American made brasses by Horton Brasses.

Beautifully done piece, and I agree with Jim, worth more than the asking price.
