This is a very interesting project but we could all use a little more information. Like what are the woods and the techniques used to create it. The construction appears to be very sophisticated as is the finish. I Assume the surface is carved, am I correct. Thanks for sharing this with us.

This is a rare and beautiful to see, thankyou for sharing. Your pieces seem alive and warm, what inspires your theme to each piece? How do you, for example link spiders and skilled cabinetry?

Wow! This is a very nice piece, and can’t imagine what your next one will be like. More than not, it will be amazing too. But, don’t let it be a year before we hear from you again. Stop by once in a while and let us know how things are going.

A masterpiece, I can see why it takes you so long.

It looks like it is of an Asian influence.

You just keep doing what you do—it’s fantastic. I didn’t have enough time yet to spend at your website, but I gotta tell ya: that’s some of the most fascinating work I’ve seen in a long time. The combination of technical expertise coupled with artistic interpretation is simply enticing. Way to go!

Me likey!

Mark, you are one talented Aussie!

This piece would be right at home in Bangkok. Is their a Thai influence in your art?

Mike, as for this being a small box, I hardly think so. I do respect the incredible artistry this piece entails, but I have to confess it’s over the top for me. Not that this matters, because my taste is probably fairly bland anyway.

Mark, I agree with Aubuster, please stop by and give us a prgress report on your current project.

Mark…your work is simply amazing. I hope we see some of the progress on the piece you are working on. I would love to see your hands at work. I can’t imagine how you even begin to do some of this.
