Nice. Funny how changing the (expected) wood can so totally alter the flavor of the piece.

You do very nice work, Bud. (And I like the fish – trout?) Is this the natural color of Myrtle or have you stained it? It reminds me a little of our Tasmanian Blackwood.

Thats a real nice wood. I’ve never worked with it, but I sure like the look. I can’t wait to see it with the cushions.
