It’s looking good Don!

You make me jealous, if I ever get time I have to get a G&G inspired piece made. I am a fan of G&G and have a ton of books on them in my library. I just lack the time to make a piece that is not for a client.

Wonderful work!

Darrell would be proud. If this is your first attempt, then unfortunately you don’t have much room for improvement. Spectacular! This is one of my favorite blogs of all time, and thanks for all of the assistance via PM.

Thanks CaptainSkully! And i’m glad I could help.

And if you knew how much Mahogany has gone onto my fireplace over the last few months you might change your stance about my not having much room for improvement. :)
