Very nice work. My dad had some woodworking skills though not as accomplished as yours. I did not inherit them & remain in awe of people who can do this stuff.

I'm reminded of a retired English couple who lived across the hall from us in NYC. He was a furniture maker. We got to see their apartment once and my gosh, the inlays, the carving, the deep rich stains. Truly amazing work.

do you do intricate parquet designs on tables? I vote for that to be your next project.

I've been considering a chess table. But I don't want to make another table yet.

And if you like this stuff, you should watch these Videos.

It's a video log of a different guy building this, from one big hunk of mahogany. 88 episodes, i think 3 months of work. Well worth the time to watch:

You're going to make some young lady very happy, Stone.

That's a valid point.

That's the level that the retired guy across the hall worked at, with inlays on some pieces. Just amazing stuff.
