    All most done.

    Well this is close enough to take a few pics. Main body is cherry, base and arm are maple, handle and dowels are oak, screws are holly. This is for a swap over younder. I was told to make something special for my swap partner, by the guy running the swap. Now I know he was just kidding, but I've been wanting to try something like this for a while. So he gets the first of these. Will most likely be doing at least one more. Thanks as always.

    Every time I see on of your projects I say to myself "that's it. He can't possibly make anything more impressive"
    I guess I'm wrong again.
