Beautiful carving. I’ve also seen some of the other pieces on your website. Have you considered making frames for your square and rectangular pieces?

As everyone else is saying “Another wonderful piece!”. You have posted so many masterpieces, I must ask – How long does it take you to complete a piece like this?

Thanks for posting,
