these hollowforms ( I assume they are) are quite lovely. Your finials are superbly crafted. I like the shapes of 2&3 The pretty wood didn’t hur either!! Thanks for sharing these with us.

David they all look nice. My favorite is the Ambrosia Maple, it just flows nice.

Really beautiful work. The ambrosia maple is gorgeous, and I’ve got a special place in my heart for blackwood trim – it finishes up so nicely.

I am SO humbled…. stunning work, the finishes you have on these are a large part of what drew me to woodworking to begin with! Mohawk laquer huh? I am in Gulf Shores… I feel pretty sure that we will meet eventually!
By the way… do you know “Lorin” from P’cola?
