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.

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?
