I like this one too. The carving detail on top adds a nice touch.
Say, when will your class start and what tools will we be needing to follow your teaching?

I agree with the rest of them. The detailing at the top really sets off the piece. And I really like finding wormholes and inclusions in wood…. they add character.

As always, Joe- a beautiful work of art. I know it’s just me but I like these natural finished pieces.

Like the new avatar, too.
