After ten years in the business, this is my first “artsy” piece, made strictly for the fun of it. Panels are curly maple, the legs and arches are ebonized maple. Ebonizing was done with India Ink. A friend of mine, Scott Finnel made the leaded glass following my design. My inspiration came from the Opera house in Sydney, Australia and since I had to watch “Finding Nemo” about a billion times with my grandaugther, I call this…......”Finding Nemo”. Go figure.

WOW! This is an EXTREMELY nice piece. My wife wants me to make a screen, but this is WAY, WAY, WAY over my head. Fantastic. Thanks for sharing.

I’m stealing a phrase that one of the kids would say to me when I tried to talk with him
cause thats what I do best LOL, he said yelling it at me “NO TALK, JUST PLAY!”

It is how we learn about ourselves.

And you know a lot!
