You look very distinguished without the hole in your forehead!!! :grin: :grin: Watch out, though, cause you brain might overheat now..... ;)


There is only one thing bad about French polish....why do we have to call it "French" LOL.....kidding, JUST KIDDING ;)




Seriously, it's lovely....a beautiful finish, helping accentuate the striking grain pattern. There is something about pieces of trees.....especially pieces that look like that, and that will sound like that will certainly sound like! It's very primal.


Top notch work, and a very unique design, IMHO. Right on Boggs :thu:
