    Beautiful piece of wood and very nice finish. I am not too fond of the shape though. But that is just me.

    That's an awesome piece of wood, and you show it off nicely. The form is a bit different, but it's growing on me.

    That is a beauty. Really nice piece of wood. You surely did it justice.

    Great looking HF.
    The finish really shows off the grain.
    Have to love Cocobolo.

    Hi George,
    I love the wood on this piece... still trying to decide if I like the shape just yet, but the piece itself is fantastic... beautiful wood and great finish... and in retrospect, the shape does show off the grain of the wood... someday, I hope to be able to work through that small of an opening... haven't quite gotten there yet... I think the smalles I've had success with is about 1 1/2... it is a nice piece..

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
