I built this piece back in 07 for my sister as a wedding gift. The Ekki was brutal to work with as it is hard as steel. But so worth the cost of the burned up blades and knives. This was my second Krenov style piece and the quarter sawn oak had a nice contrast. Tung oil and past wax was the finish and it was a joy to hand wax it after all the challenges I had cutting it. What a joy woodworking is. I pleased to be able to share with this like minded community all the joys we share in the woodshop. Cheers

Awesome interpretation of a Krenov style stand. The ekki and QSWO work really well together.

Wow, why wasn’t this in the daily top three?? This is great stuff. You have the talent of an ox, Narinder! Ok, that might be the most confusing praise I have ever read or written. I just meant to say that you have awesome talent!
