    Since I'm currently working my way through the "Storm Of Swords" by George R.R. Martin, I can say that's a very clever use of woodburning and carving! Love the claw foot. I could see some fans of these kinds of books being very interested in that piece!

    Very cool, Steve. I couldn't even begin to carve something like that.

    I would have been satisfied to have turned the orb, let alone have the ability to create the carving embellishments, a spectacular piece.

    There is a lot of creativity in this piece, combined with the workmanship, it is an amazing piece of art. A lot of skills were necessary for this, you did a great job.
