Dennis, you were just supposed to look at the wood and then give it back. But since you did a good job with it i will let it slide this time. That is Big leaf Maple from Washington. Nice work. The sycamore is darker than what i have, but it looks good.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
