    Gorgeous piece.

    It did look a little crooked in the first pic but it appears to be straight in the second pic.

    Once you take care of the crooked part, I think you've got a winner there. Seriously, that's a nice one, Steve. The detail work on your pedestal and finial are so many notches above what you were doing a year ago, I've lost count.

    That's a nice one Stephen. I like how the lid is recessed and just kind of pokes its head over the edge. That little void type thing in the side is neat too. That was good you were able to capture that.
