Thanks bobasaurus.
I wanted there to be a good amount of it, but didn’t want to overdo it so it wouldn’t look too “cluttered”.

Wow. That is beautification. How much time did you have to invest to make something with all that detail. It is definitely a gorgeous piece of work.

Thanks Mooseman!!!!
I log my time in the shop, and the total of all the time I spent (which, I admit, does include making jigs, setting up machines, etc….) was 107 hours and 20 minutes of actual shop time.
I do work slow and methodically as this is a hobby for me and not a business. I would imagine a professional shop being able to do it in half the time. BUT, it is nice to work without a deadline or time constraints. So, that is probably why it took so many hours. I try not to rush myself.

Thanks again for the kind words. I really appreciate it.

If that’s a compliment, thank you.
If that’s a statement as to how crazy I am by spending 107 hours on something….You sir, are correct!!!! :-)

This is a really beautiful piece…

the inlay and brass make it especially so.
