They are all fantastic Ron, this one really appeals to me. Love the colours, the open face, and the bark. The shape and finish really set it off!

-- 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.

Very nice piece, Ron. It looks to be a real challenge to hold that inside shape with that big of an open area. Nice work on it!!

The only thing that would make this more amazing is if you could somehow fill this with amber or some other clear liquid. It’s an amazing display piece though! I wouldn’t hide this in storage if I were you – I bet people would be shocked and impressed that you made it!
