    Remind me again. Does that one complete a pair ? Or is that one different?
    That is one of the best forms ,and so well done that Wintertur might call and and suggest "a trade".

    Thanks Mel for the compliment...the one I finished in the Spring was made using bent laminations. This was made with a little less curve, using stacks of softwood bandsawed for the curve, and a lot of hand tool work - the moldings were carved with gouges and scrapers.

    Mark, that's really well done. Just terrific work, sir. I love the figure on the drawer fronts. What wood is it?

    Thanks John. It is cherry veneer from Certainly Wood; I think they are in your area of upstate NY. Have you been to their facility?

    I though it might be cherry but wasn't sure because of the fleck. Pretty unusual and awesome stuff. Oh yes, I've been to Certainly Wood just outside East Aurora. It's a 50 mile trip each way but worth it for special veneer. They have racks and racks of veneer of every imaginable species. Definitely woodworker's eye candy. Great folks to work with, too.

    Stunning piece Mark. Love the detail - fluting, double bead edge, etc. Congrats!

    And some people say they go to the turning forum when they want to look at pretty pictures! Well done! Your skills are top notch. Nice wood too.

    Mark, Absolutely fabulous work. What was your source for the pulls? They suit the piece very well.
