Thanks for looking! Appreciate the comments. It took a little longer than I had anticipated (3 weeks), but none the less I enjoyed working on it especially the carving and the lathe work. A lot of my clientle don’t ask for much carving so when they do it’s a treat!

Nice piece in the Spanish Colonial tradition. Was this a commission?

That is awesome. Looks great and will serve well for many years. Must have taken a long while to complete that one.

3 weeks, huh?

It would take me 3 weeks to finish that after it was already made. (Ok, 4 weeks) (OK, 5 weeks).

Seriously, that is just fantastic. Something to be extremely proud of. You should quit making things now. I mean, how do you top that?

Oh, I just saw the kitchen. My mistake, you topped it….
