Thank you gentlemen. It was a fun project and highly recommended because of the techniques that one acquires. Woodchip, please send me your email in a private mess. as I need to discuss something with you re: sending you this box.
Jim, one of your best. You did a very fine job on this one. I have said often that I'm not a fan of finials, but this one works. The size and design are perfect for this piece. No contradictions, no fighting for what part is more important, no being a separate "add-on" that looks just kind of stuck on. Super job. 8)
Thanks to all of you for your kind comments. And Doug brings up an important matter that we all strive for: the business of every aspect of a piece working with all of the others. Its all part of the question of proportion I think; something that I harp on too frequently...
And Jr., I shall miss having a piece of your work.
