I can see a lot of natural talent in your wood working, J! I wish you a bright and rewarding future! . . . and I am sure glad you added, “that and the wife!”

Absolutely beautiful!!! I really like the contrasting woods and the dovetails give an elegance that is unmatched. I make urns for a living and this is truly one of the best designs I have ever seen. Keep up the good work!
