Oh my awesome build. Obviously I’ve had to favorite it. I like the big butter fly, floating top, live edge, colors, etc, etc. 10 of 10

I can spot a nice piece of walnut when I see it, and this one has caught my eye.

Very unusual. It’s quite an eye catcher.

Great wedding present from a creative craftsman! Is it dyed to match the space?

Excellent work! It’s awesome, the walnut is gorgeous and great execution of the floating top design. Like the bow tie, a very nice touch. A great gift indeed!
