Took me forever to complete but I’m quite proud of this one. Mahogany and bird’s eye maple with 4 way bookmatched top, symmetrical dragons in marquetry. Another contract for Jan Bulis of Montreal Canadiens. 2001.

Just wow! I don’t dare show this to my wife, because she’d be very disappointed I can’t do anything like this (yet ;)). Very nice!
