You sure have mastered the ring master, that grain is really something else. Well done Peter.

WOW, is certainly in order for this beautiful piece. I must echo Bob’s comment on your mastery of the Ringmaster and your eye for pleasing designs.

Super piece of workmanship. The grain is gorgeous, especially in pic 4, I think.
