    All mine are still hiding. Glad you found yours!! Very nice piece Dan. Is the interior tapered to match or a straight shaft?

    the sides are tapered to the bottom of the incline. its a keeper. not sure what type of walnut it is, all i know is when i go browsing, if something catches my eye, i'll buy it, not knowing until later, what it will be.
