By golly, this one seemed to take me forever although it was about the same time as the last. Each time I finish one, I say “never again” but my obsession with creating one that totally satisfies me seems to still be bothering me. But for now, I am sticking with “Never again!”, LOL.The size of it is 38” x 33” x 6” (at it’s highest point.)

I am in awe, Jordan.
Can’t think of an appropriate response that would adequately define the beauty and precision.

Hey, you guys are all still here!!! Great to hear from you!!! I disappear into these difficult projects then surface once the sawdust has been vacuumed up. Thank you all.
Debbie – more complex? I’m not sure what it was but it perplexed me at times.

I don’t know what to say, Jordan. I’ll just say that your work is absolutely extraordinary.

Thank you everyone, imagine what it’ll be like being in a ‘heated’ garage for the winter? I might just go crazy!
