Thank you for showing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

It looks fantastic! Like the design, gorgeous burl, pretty shape, live edge and the turquoise added a very nice accent. The finish is just amazing. Superb work!
