    WoW! Another beautiful example of craftsman woodworking. I envy your talent. My Dad was that good but I didn't inherit his woodworking genes.... I inherited all his bad ones :D

    Beautiful. Way too nice for my tying skills. I'd have paint,head cement and superglue all over the tabletop before you know it.

    Really nice.

    That looks even better than on paper. Thanks for finishing up early. Let me know when you would like to deliver it.

    Very nice. I love the proportions and clean lines.

    Really a lovely piece of work.

    Thanks for the complements Guys.
    Roper, Yes for a customer. I build a few pieces a year to support my
    fly tying and fly fishing addictions.
