    Thanks Allen

    Measures 9-1/2" Tall and 7-1/2" Wide.
    I don't keep track on my project time, but I
    would estimate about 30-35 hours.

    That's great work, Les. I'll bet the hours melt away when you're involved with a project like that. I know that happens to me on some pieces. I'll get on a good roll, then notice it's been five or six hours since I've be in the shop, and it's time to call it a night. (I usually don't get out to the shop until 10:00 PM or so.)
