One of my LJ buddies is Martyn. He is also know as the professor. I have followed AND admired his work since I first joined LJ. There are many,...many masterful wood workers on this site. Martyn is (in my opinion) on of the best of the best. His masterful patterns have astonished me and amazed me as I am sure many others. He is indeed a true artist!! Martyn, if you see this, is on the way to your shop. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed your work.
