That is really nice.
Kind of Aztec looking (well, kind of).

Marty, another winner. Everytime I see one of your fantastic projects it makes me want to pick up my chip knives and try digging in again….one of these days I just might get it right (perhaps now that the weather is beginning to get cold and wet here would be a great time to sharpen them up and start practicing).

You are indeed correct that these would make excellent gifts….and what better than a handmade gift rather then something made poorly or cheaply. As a woodworker, I am always on the lookout for gift ideas I can make that are both elegant and thoughtful…..especially at this time of year that when we are in full Christmas gift mode….

What a beautiful project, Marty! I love the look of this. Embedding the stones really makes it look great too. Wonderful project!
