Another spectacular piece, Dan. I’ll have to sell some pens and save up to bid on one someday soon. They seem to be a must-have for me.

I love these tile and frames that you make Dan. Keep up the good work. I know you probably said it before, but what is the size of this tile? I see the frame is 20×17, but missed the tile size.

Another beauty, Dan. Maybe someday I’ll be able to make something look that good...

That quarter sawn oak is sooooooo pretty. I wouldn’t even know where to get some. I doubt that the local lumber yard would have any. Do you have to special order that from some specialty house?

Found the tile mold this weekend and am pressing a few more tiles. This is the mold I used to make
“the clearing” tile series. As stated above I made the mold from a mahogany wood carving. I still have the carving and the mold has made about 70 tiles. It is getting worn, but still produces decent tiles.
