Wonderful looking throne, all the pictures show it off, but that last one is my favorite. Your love of
wood and carving really show through in this one, as well as your talent and skill. Thank you for sharing.

Great vision! As Jamie said above, it has a very effective “flow”, very organic, inspiring and inviting.

Do you happen to have pictures of the joinery process?

Yeah man! Inspirational, sculptural, organic, tactile…words that comes to mind. Who be the king (or queen)?

You’ve created a fantastic throne. It looks better than most of the props used in the HBO series “Game Of Thrones”. I’m impressed.

This is one of the coolest projects I have ever seen. Definately a one of a kind which looks impossible to duplicate. Add me to the list of those who would like to see the joinery. Thanks for posting this extraordinary work of art.
