Greg, I miss the corner splines too. That wood has some wonderful grain patterns after you shape it. Another winner. Good luck with your sales.

freakin amazing transformation from the original glue up. Do you cut the feet after its glued up? I always thought it was best done when the pieces can be cut separately but your pictures show otherwise.
2nd picture is definitely my favorite shot, it really shows the texture and incredibly smooth finish! Another Beaut!

Wow Greg the before and after pics are amazing. The Cocobolo doesn’t look anything terrific until you sculpt into it exposing all the grain patterns as you sculpt deeper. Just amazing looking.

Now that is rich grain and color. Any special methods for gluing the cocobolo?One of your best Greg and I for one don’t miss the splines at all. I think they get overdone a little so it’s nice to see a box without them. I just think it looks cleaner.
