I went to his website too. He does really nice work overall, but looking at this 3000.00 box, he should clean up the pencil marks and on his commissioning page, he shouldn’t show finish already applied over a bunch of pencil marks, plus the end grain of the board on the commissioning page is all “faceted” in some odd shape, apparently rounded over very quickly. Once again, looks good, more power to him if he can get that price, but he is outright lying to his customers about the time involved because he doesn’t take any time on details, more like measure it, cut it, glue it, finish it. I would just hate for people to get turned away from buying handmade because they think this is the price they have to pay for something that is not top quality.
