    Thanks Chris! I got the pulls from Ball and Ball reproductions in Pennsylvania. They are a good company.

    Gorgeous! Well done!

    Incidentally, my wife grew up in Exton Pa, less than 2 miles from Ball and Ball.

    Thanks Ron! The people at Ball and Ball are always friendly and helpful. Chester county is a nice area.

    Iíve stared at your photo for quite a while again, and must say the carved detail work really sets this piece apart. I can only imagine how fun that was with figured wood. Iím sure (like all your projects), itís hard to walk by without a pause to admire. So, whatís next on the list?!

    I also have come back to this photo several times over the last few weeks to admire the talent it takes to pull off a project like this.

    Mark, have you considered submitting this to Fine Woodworking Gallery? I think you deserve some recognition for your work.

    Thanks for the positive feedback Phil, I always wanted to do curved molding by hand, and I had a nice piece of figured wood for the base molding. I am working on Michael Fortune's Garden Chair from Fine Woodworking. My plastic adirondack chairs start to crack after 2 or 3 seasons, and I ended up on my back staring at the sky while on the phone with my brother this past spring - the back of the chair snapped in two. I was just shaken up, but it motivated me to build something of quality. The bent laminations are quite an adventure.

    Brian, thanks for the compliments; it makes the hours of carving, scraping, veneering, and hand work worthwhile.

    Have not tried bent lamination, yet. I donít think I can quite top your clamp job, but here is where i was trying to bend some cherry molding. Yes, it took a trip to HD...I think I cleaned them out.
