Now this is a piece of wood!! You have done a magnificent job on this from design to finished chair. You should have zero trouble getting your asking price. Again, just a marvelous job. It’s beautiful!

This is a magnificant piece. I hope people realize the amount of work necessary to take a piece of wood of this size, scope and grain to achieve a finish such as you have, as well as make it functional.
Unfortunately, it is kind of a niche piece. It will take a special buyer with a special decor to buy it, but you have really knocked it out of the park!

Really, some truly amazing work. Sure is something you don’t see everyday. Just wondering what a chunk of wood like that weighs.
